Teen survivor and advocate Chessy Prout will talk about her new memoir, “I Have The Right To: A High School Survivor’s Story of Sexual Assault, Justice, and Hope,” with co-author Jenn Abelson, an investigative reporter for the Boston Globe Spotlight Team. After Chessy was sexually assaulted as a 15-year-old freshman at her high school, she testified against her attacker and won a conviction in a criminal trial. Chessy shed her anonymity to let other survivors know they are not alone and launched the #IHaveTheRightTo campaign to encourage people to stand with victims of sexual violence. Chessy will discuss her advocacy work with PAVE, a victim empowerment group that has helped survivors like Emily Doe and Andrea Constand. Chessy and Jenn will be signing copies of the book purchased at the event.
