0089: Joelle Casteix and Sexual Assault Advocacy

Joelle Casteix joins Natasha on this episode. Joelle is a sexual assault advocate having worked with SNAP and is currently with STOP.

Joelle shares her story of sexual assault while a student at a Catholic school where the heads of the school knew what was happening, silencing her as a teenager. She goes into detail with similarities between her religion, Catholicism, and Mormonism.

Natahsa and Joelle discuss what survivors can do, what leaders can do and what members/friends can do to help sexual assault victims.
