VIRTUAL Break the Silence Speaker Series


May 21st 2020   6:30pm via Crowdcast

On March 12, as we faced the coming threat of COVID-19 in our mountain community, we had to cancel our largest fundraiser of the year; however, we believe that continuing this conversation is crucial as we continue to work to shift culture and end sexual violence and harassment in our city and county. On May 21st we hosted our first interactive, virtual event and are proud to share with you a recording of the powerful evening below.

Our VOICE would not be able to sustain our important work without the support of our generous community allies, especially our Break the Silence sponsors. Our VOICE board member, Carolyn Curtis, interviewed some of our 2020 sponsors about what “Breaking the Silence” means to them, please check out these short videos and help our sponsors continue to support Our VOICE!
