Beyond Silence The Voice of Childhood Sexual Abuse Fundraising Events

These events are in support of Beyond Silence The Voice of Childhood Sexual Abuse. A collection of fourteen stories by fourteen  Island women capturing their experiences of childhood sexual abuse, and their collective wisdom on how to prevent it.

These fourteen stories will be compiled into a book, translated to a stage production, DVD and workshop series all to empower other adult survivors to educate community, and to prevent child sexual abuse.

The Vagina Monologues
March 7, 2008 - March 8, 2008

The theatre was sold out both nights and it was an empowering, funny and witty experience for the audience!   It was the sixth production hosted by the UPEI Vagina Monologues Advisory Committee, and it was certainly a night to remember!   

Thank you so much to Trish Daley and all of the cast and crew for their hard work and choosing SAGE to donate the proceeds to.
