One courageous teenage girl tells her story
Exposing Abuse Discussed at Lifetree Café
How to end sexual abuse will be considered at Lifetree Café.
The program, titled “Blowing the Whistle on Abuse: One Courageous Teenage Girl Tells Her Story,” includes a film of a young woman who was abused by her father for 11 years.
“My dad started sexually abusing me when I was 5. I didn’t know what it was, but I knew it felt wrong because he told me not to tell Mom. I felt trapped,” says the young woman, who chose at 16 to finally tell her story.
Participants will also get a glimpse into the price she paid for going public as well as the freedom she experienced when the abuse ended.
Admission to the 60-minute Lifetree event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.
Where: Cafe at New Beginnings
When: 6:30 pm on September 2
