Frances and Becky are preparing to embark on a six month trip around the country interviewing people about their life journeys post trauma. In the summer of 2012, the two will depart California making month long stops in Seattle, WA, Phoenix, AZ, Cleveland, OH, New York City, NY, and Atlanta, GA to talk with people of each of these regions. Focusing on sexual assault related trauma, the project will tell the story of the paths that people take in their process of healing. The book and documentary will illuminate the existence of sexual assault and give voice to the survivors of this systematically silenced phenomenon. We view this project as a stepping stone towards the eventual eradication of sexual assault that will empower not only survivors of trauma, but also our society overall to stand up for change.
