Tonight's special guest is Suzanne Isaza, MSA, NAASCA Ambassador from Rhode Island, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse by a close family member. At 19, she reported the offender and he was convicted of assaulting four children. "For many years I have been sharing my story," she says, "writing articles on this topic, and supporting other survivors to join this movement." Suzanne has delivered dozens of sexual assault prevention talks since 2014. As a member of Day One's One Voice survivor speakers bureau for two years, she began speaking publicly throughout Rhode Island about her experiences as a survivor of sexual abuse. Her presentations communicate a compelling and powerful message to college students, professionals, educators, and survivors of abuse. Suzanne runs SAAN, the Sexual Assault Advocacy Network. "Our purpose is to build community among activists, share information on what works in sexual violence prevention, and - perhaps most importantly - to inspire and empower one another to use our powerful voices to keep people safe from abuse and trauma." Suzanne authors a regular column for Child's World America, writing on a broad range of topics including child sexual abuse and human trafficking. As a member of RAINN's survivor speakers' bureau, she shares her story and activism with local and national news media to further awareness and prevention. A part of author Emma Bell's Global Resilience Project, Suzanne is being featured as one of 50 people around the world demonstrating exceptional resilience in the face of personal tragedy.
