April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. All month long we will be focusing on the Theme of No More Secrets: An Intimate Look at the Impact of Sexual Abuse. Joining Lilada in the studio for the month of April is Jillian Stacey. She is the new African-American Community Outreach Coordinator at Rape Crisis Center of Dane County. We will be working in partnership with Lilada’s Livingroom, Black Woman Heal initiative to increase healing from sexual abuse in the Black community in Dane County.
Our first guest is Shonita Roach, Founder of Shades of You, Shades of Me, a ministry that supports women who have been affected by domestic violence, postpartum depression and sexual assault. Later, co-minister at Fountain of Life Church, Annie Weatherby Flowers joins the conversation. Both are these women are survivors of childhood sexual abuse and they courageously share their stories.
