Breaking Silence

This week on The Undercurrent, host Cole Tunningley presents a special episode focused on Breaking Silence.

Breaking Silence is a program in the Lansing area that attempts to give voices to teenagers who may otherwise not have a chance to speak up.

First, the host interviews the founder of Breaking Silence and two members. They explain the goals of their group and the details of Unhushed Lips, a storytelling event that was also their first major project.

Lastly, the members of Breaking Silence kindly share their own audio narrative. You will hear stories from victims of abuse who spoke at Unhushed Lips, mixed with a sobering look at facts and statistics concerning sexual violence in America.
