Episode 2 - Sexual Violence in Sports  

 

““Abuse is a dirty hidden secret in sports and what people are seeing is the tip of the iceberg,” Kirsty Duncan, the former deputy leader of government in the House of Commons 

 

The Harmony Project brings together local service providers working towards ending sexual violence in our community. In our fourth season of Let the Truth Talk, we focus on how sexual violence has been presented in the news. In this episode we talk with Joe Campbell from The Alberta Council of Womens Shelters and Abby Spadafora from Gymnasts for Change Canada.  

This episode highlights the work of these organizations in how they are working towards ending abuse and violence in sports, changing the culture from the inside out.
