Bringing Rape to Reality

Debbie and her family offer a rare opportunity.

The smith family knows the reality of rape. Debbie, her husband, Rob and their two children, have coped with the trauma it causes. Now they bring a message that is open, honest, and empowering. Not only do they teach victims how to overcome their past, but they deliver an important truth to criminal agencies. By communicating the effects of rape, the Smiths are able to motivate and inspire changes in laws, systems and practices. All of their efforts concentrate on one inspired goal: to protect and prevent victims of sexual assault.
