The survivor who broke the Shambhala sexual assault story - Columbia Journalism Review


This is a great write-up from the Columbia Journalism Review about the work that was performed by Andrea Winn and Buddhist Project Sunshine, touching upon some of the ways how it was very progressive work and represents a paradigm shift in terms of how victims' experiences are not only reported, but supported, by public media works.
