Taking Another Look at this PD Special Feature!

Joanna Connors is a writer for the Plain Dealer. It was about 2 years ago that she went through Volunteer Training and told me she was a survivor herself and that she was working on a piece for the PD documenting her experience. Despite how upfront Joanna was, I still wasn't prepared for the amazing work she published in May of 2008. Joanna tells her story and, both fortunately and unfortunatley, it resonates with many other survivors of sexual assault.

When the piece was published initially (in it's own section of the paper!) we got an amazing response from the community. And just this morning WCPN re-aired an interview with Joanna and Megan O'Bryan, our Executive Director! Our services were mentioned at length along with the Hotline Number which was given out repeatedly. It's great to see the community support Joanna and link other survivors with our services. In case you missed the article, or would like to take a second look at it again, here it is!
