Despite the tough subject ofThe 5 Browns Story: Digging Through the Darkness, we are inspired and moved by The 5 Browns for sharing their courageous story and filmmaker Ben Niles for delivering it so beautifully to the world. We thank them for joining us, KUER, and RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio earlier this month to present two screenings and Q&As of the film.
The 5 Browns Story explores an intimate look at Utah natives The 5 Browns, a group of sibling pianists with a meteoric rise to stardom only to be devastated years later by the tragic realization that all three sisters had been sexually abused by their father.
If you are looking for ways to get actively involved with local advocacy organizations fighting against domestic and child abuse, we encourage you to reach out to these groups in our community:
- The Foundation for Survivors of Abuse (formed by The 5 Browns’ Deondra and Desirae)
- Prevent Child Abuse Utah Hotline: 1-855-323-DCFS (3237)
- Utah Domestic Violence Coalition Hotline: 1-800-897-LINK (5465)
- YWCA Women in Jeopardy program Hotline: 801-537-8600
