Taking Back Our Lives
Join Leah Zeiger, founder of The Sunflower Project, as she takes the audience on a journey through time to discover how the past and present pop culture has influenced, and even encouraged, abuse as a social norm with her solo Relatively In Touch.
Watch a screening of the award-winning documentary Untold, a film that uncovers the depths of Leah's experience with abuse, as well as how she overcame it through art.
Ask Leah and other survivors questions at the end-of-show panel on what it means to be a survivor.
