Thanks to the generosity of a number of storytellers and partner organizations, we have put together a collection of 12 digital stories (three of which are featured to your right) by a diverse group of women and men from across the United States, who talk with courage and honesty about how domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse, and sexual assault have affected their lives. The stories are two to four minutes in length each, making them ideal for use as training tools and in educational, awareness raising, and advocacy settings. A discussion guide is included on the DVD. $50 plus shipping/handling.
