Dear Katie: Survivor Stories

Nov 17 2022 • 42 mins

From farmer’s country to rich New England town, 13-year-old Rae Beth was the new kid at her middle school. As an outcast, she found friendship in a classmate who did not share the privileges of their peers. At her new best friend’s birthday party, Rae Beth is sexually assaulted for the first time by her friend’s father, the beginning of a series of repeated, chilling instances. After six years of silence, she is now a year away from a master’s degree in social work, and a career in advocacy for sexual assault prevention.
