USC Guest Speakers // DIRTY TALK // VISIONS and VOICES

It was such an honor be guest speakers today for a psychology class at University of Southern Californi on behalf of our theater company World Kin Ensembl. 
We discussed campus sexual health and our show "DIRTY TALK" which will be performed there as part of  USC Visions and Voice.
The show is based on real interviews of sexual assault on college campuses from students, advocates and professors. Days like these remind us why this work is so important and healing. #SexualassaultAwareness #CampusHealth #SexualAssault #TitleIX
