Criminal Sexual Conduct:
What Needs to Change?
This 4-hour radio documentary is co-produced by WUVS-LP 103.7 The Beat and Connie Nesbary International LLC as supported by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Listen in, with moderator Connie Nesbary, MA LPC LLP, as we begin conversations with survivors and experts from across the U.S. exploring solutions to the pandemic of criminal sexual conduct. Our hope is that this program will raise awareness of the issues, promote compassion through understanding, and encourage conversations in communities about what changes need to be made so that all are safer from criminal sexual conduct.
