“Broken Trust” takes an unflinching look at the secret world of sexual and emotional abuse experienced by athletes. Moving beyond attention-grabbing headlines, the film draws on courageous first-hand testimonies from Olympic and national-class athletes and coaches to reveal how victims in the sports world are often isolated and ostracized for speaking out, how parents are pressured to keep silent when confronted by abusive coaches, and how more and more athletes are fighting back to change the system. “Broken Trust” is a powerful tool for critically examining the systemic and social forces that contribute to the culture of abuse in sports and beyond.

Post-film discussion with Wendy Crossland, Victim Advocate, Summit County Attorney’s office, Laurieann Thorpe, Executive Director, Prevent Child Abuse Utah, and others TBA. Followed by small group community conversations facilitated by Mountain Mediation. Admission is free.

Presented with Friends of the Children’s Justice Center as part of the Raising Voices Film Series.
