The Silence Speaks Survivor Digital Story DVD is now available. Since 1999, the Silence Speaks digital storytelling initiative has led more than 35 intensive media production workshops to help survivors and witnesses of gender-based violence share their stories. The Digital Story DVD is a collection of 12 pieces 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. These short pieces (each two to four minutes) are ideal for use as provider training tools and in other educational/awareness-raising settings. The compilation DVD includes a detailed discussion guide and is available for $50, plus shipping and handling. All proceeds will support a partnership with the South Africa-based Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust. To order a copy of Silence Speaks, click here and for more information, click here.
