City Club of Cleveland - 4-5-2019 - Start By Believing: Why Preventing Sexual Violence Starts With Listening to Survivors
From the rise of the #MeToo movement to allegations against high-profile celebrities, public officials, priests and powerful business executives, sexual violence has never been more prominent in our national headlines. In the midst of these news stories, an unprecedented volume of local survivors of rape and sexual abuse have been speaking out, sharing their experiences and asking for help.

The prevalence of these headlines and survivor stories leaves us wondering - is there any hope to reduce or even eradicate sexual violence from our world?

Sondra Miller, President & CEO of Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, will share strategies to prevent sexual violence and outline why listening more deeply to survivors is our first step to get there.
