Over a month ago, Ben reached out to The Foundation For Survivors of Abuse. It is a foundation created and directed by Deondra and Desirae Brown, two members of the piano chamber group, The 5 Browns. He wanted to thank them for all the work they’re doing on behalf of survivors of sexual abuse.
News of their case back in 2011 helped us learn about the statute of limitations for reporting cases of sexual abuse in Utah, which played a key role in how we moved forward with our own.
They asked Ben if we might be interested in doing a podcast for their series. After discussing it, we agreed to. Our goals align with those of this foundation. The two of us were both humbled and excited to have this opportunity to share some of our story as childhood sexual abuse survivors.
We want to thank Tera Brown for the time she took to interview us and for the brave work she does as an advocate for survivors of sexual abuse. We encourage anyone suffering from the effects of sexual abuse to visit their site, survivingabuse.org, for resources and information on the legal processes. We encourage everyone to visit their site and support this much needed organization.
