Join us for The CARE Center’s Stand Up For Kids luncheon on October 5, 2017 at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club featuring guest speaker Sasha Joseph Neulinger.

Working as a child actor, Sasha held a deep secret of multigenerational child sexual abuse at the hands of three family members. Today as a film maker with one of the largest ever Kickstarter campaigns for a documentary, he is on a mission to share his story of healing and empower others to stand up for kids.

About Sasha Joseph Neulinger:

Between the ages of four and eight, Sasha was sexually abused by two of his uncles and one male cousin. After he discovered they were also abusing his sister, Sasha came forward and spoke up about the abuse. Sasha spent the next decade entangled in the criminal justice system—and struggling to reclaim his identity in the aftermath of his stolen childhood.

Since just before his 17th birthday when the last case was closed, Sasha has become a filmmaker, and is currently in the process of producing and directing an autobiographical film about his experiences as a victim of multigenerational child sexual abuse. The film is the recipient of the 6th largest ever KickStarter campaign for a film.

Sasha’s story shows that there is life after abuse, and that really dealing with and processing pain leads to self-empowerment. The richness and depth of this story transcends the confines of one family’s painful history to reach the minds and hearts of many. Sasha and his team are on a mission to tell his story and change the way we talk about and understand child sexual abuse.
