Byron Shire Mayor Simon Richardson presents a panel of five professionals in the fields of Health, Law and Relationships to reflect on the case of abuse survivor John Saunders.
John, Byron resident and Author of the recently published ‘Sexual Abuse Survivor’s Handbook’ will begin the evening with a candid and courageous outline of an extraordinary personal healing journey.
With humour and insight. John highlights fifteen years of correspondence with the leaders of the Catholic Church, documenting an institution in crisis; and an equally outdated civil system in need of support to change.
The evening aims to break down the social taboos surrounding this ‘real life’ topic through the exchange of knowledge and community connection. An open forum, with John and the panel invites the audience to share and contribute to a means that will positively affect social change, healing and awareness so greatly needed.
This is an evening full of rich information.
