Paradox Prize Round One Winners; Surviving Sexual Abuse

Featured Audio

The first winners of the Paradox Prize are helping to bridge the transportation gap for Northeast Ohio workers. Three ideas were chosen for funding from 53 entries. Ideas include using idle church vans to get Cleveland workers to suburban jobs, a door-to-door service for employees in Akron, and ride sharing to bring workers to job hubs in Painesville and Mentor.  We'll hear from the winners to begin this hour.  Later, sexual abuse and sexual violence is more likely to be perpetuated by someone known to the victim and the victims are often teens. We'll meet with a local woman who describes herself as not just a survivor of abuse.  She says she's a thriver and has used her own experience to help others..
