Safe Touch Short Educational Film Launch: “No Secrets, Only Surprises: Sami’s Story” Written & Animated by Hilary Huskey, Adjunct Professor of Art at NCCU
April is SAAM (Sexual Assault Awareness Month) and CAPM (Child Abuse Prevention Month). In honor of these two important issues the premiere of “No Secrets, Only Surprises: Sami’s Story” is this month. This short, animated film was born out of a collaboration between NCCU Art Department and the Safe Touch program which serves students in Orange and Durham counties. The video is intended for use in elementary classrooms as an educational tool to prevent child sexual abuse.
We have been cooking up something special at OCRCC- our very own podcast! P.P.E. Time (Protecting our Power + Energy + Time) is releasing 4 episodes for Sexual Assault Awareness Month #SAAM2022. Originally recorded in 2021, the podcast features special guest discussions with survivors, activists, doulas, healers, and visionaries in the movement to end sexual violence. New episodes dropping each Friday in April!
OCRCC Presents: Protecting (our) Power + Energy + Time (P.P.E. Time) Podcast!
Episode 2 is with the wonderful Whit McWilliams where we talk about being a doula, parenting and being parented, healing, and intergenerational relationships. As a full-spectrum doula, Whit McWilliams (she/they) is dedicated to serving the community. Early on in Whit’s birth work journey, she felt the call to serve Black mamas, young parents, poor, LGBTQIA+, and QTBIPOC people in the South. Her goals are to one day become a community midwife and to open birth centers and community gardens actress the Southeastern States of America.
