    “To find that senior leadership is not living the example that they expect of us, it cut the legs out from under everybody. It really undermined our credibility within the institution and it leaves us with the question of, ‘Where now?’” said Taylor.

    In part two of our exclusive interview, Taylor talks about the harm associated with reporting the abuse and why it’s so important to end the silence. Mercedes Stephenson has more.
