Breaking the Silence

Posted about 3 years ago by Pat Sonnenstuhl

On Sunday, August 30, at 10/9 Central, the TLC channel will air the premiere of "Breaking the Silence." It has been an incredible experience participating in the development of this groundbreaking film addressing the issue of child sexual abuse. This film communicates the importance of adult responsibility and prevention. Don't forget to set your DVRs or tune in to this special commercial-free program. Join us on Twitter before and during the premiere, using the hashtag #BeTheVoice, to discuss the film and how to protect children from sexual abuse.

We are also creating a viewers guide that will give you more information and provide deeper insight into the film. It will be available on Sunday right before the film at 9 p.m. Eastern and you can download the guide here.

Soon, we will create a screening kit for facilitators to use within their communities. It will include guides for setting up screenings and conducting discussions as well as materials to promote the event. More information will be sent on that shortly.

For those of you who are not able to see the live airing, the film is available for download on iTunes, VOD or on demand at TLC.com starting on Monday, August 31.

We look forward to the premiere of this very important film and ask you to join us for conversation on Twitter and beyond.
