Encore: Sexual Assault Awareness: We Hear a Survivor's Story


We're listening back to a conversation we had last month to mark Sexual Assault Awareness Month. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, one in three women, and one in six men, have experience some form of sexual violence in their lifetime in America. We met Wendy J. Silva, she's Sexual Assault Program Manager at the Punta Gorda-based Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies Inc. (C.A.R.E.). We also met Lesley Barton, who shared her experience as a sexual assault survivor and advocate.
