There are approximately 60 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in America today, and we have an opportunity to be a voice for them. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and we invite individuals to get involved in the Community Voice behind ‘Ocala’ and the Survivors it represents.” Brett is joined by Producers Mark Mathis, Brandon Hirsch, Jeanine Meszaros and Director Matthew Dean Russell, all actively making a way for this film and its message.
