Carolyn’s note: This Esperanza Dance Project is aimed to eliminate the stigma, shame & secrecy associated with childhood sexual violence, through messages of hope, strength and empowerment. As someone who was molested sexually as a young child by a stranger in a store, I can personally attest to the power of this type of project. The presentation is designed for the community as well as high school students. Esperanza is the Spanish word for “hope”.
