Out of Darkness, Into Light

Out of Darkness, Into Light

Out of Darkness, Into Light is a half hour documentary which delves into the lives of three adult survivors of child sexual abuse, who through their own personal experiences, are committed to helping others affected by this unthinkable crime.

Statistics show that ninety percent of child victims know their offender, with almost half of the offenders being a family member.

With this knowledge, it is believed through education and awareness child sexual abuse can be prevented.


This Emmy award winning documentary is available for screening to small groups through our WLRN Speakers Series.  WLRN producers  are available to answer questions and share their insights about the program.  When available, featured guests may be invited to share their comments and engage the community in conversation about this otherwise silent topic.
