There is a need to build upon social change and the time is now. In the creation of the Break the Silence Photography Series for Sexual Violence Awareness, Stephanie Santore and Ashley Matthews asked volunteers to step forward to reveal their personal experience with sexual violence or abuse. They also welcomed supporters of the cause that included friends/family members of those affected to speak out against it. This event was a part of August First Friday Scranton. The event also doubled as a fundraiser for the Women’s Resource Center.
