Gifts from the Heart 2018

The last 18 months have seen a dramatic increase in the amount of media coverage, news stories and discussion about sexual assault, sexual abuse, and sexual harassment. Every #metoo has raised the public awareness and empathy for victims of these crimes, and empowered victims to speak out and be heard. As professionals who work with survivors of sexual abuse on a daily basis, we have been listening to these victims all along. At this event, we want to celebrate the courage of the children and families who are affected by sexual abuse, and raise funds to help them continue to heal and find their own voices. We hope you will join us.
