Free Morton Arboretum art show created by survivors of sexual abuse

LISLE, Ill. (WLS) -- The Biden administration calls sexual assault a public health crisis.

Nearly one in five women in America experiences a rape or attempted rape, and nearly 44% of women and about 25% of all men experience some form of sexual violence in their lifetime, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And some local artists will be coming together Sunday to give a voice and bring awareness to the experiences of survivors of sexual abuse. It is called "Reclaiming Voices Survivor Art Show."
