The last Major League baseball game was played on October 30, 2019. The Nats won.
When Christine Blasey Ford sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee and testified that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both teenagers back in 1982, millions were listening.
For many in the Washington region — and around the country — the details of Ford’s assault and its lingering psychological effects brought painful memories to the surface.
Some leaned on friends and coworkers for support while others took to social media to share their experiences. How are survivors of sexual assault coping in the #MeToo era? And what local resources are available to those seeking help? Kojo speaks with two local professionals, and takes your calls.
