Patti Wicklund and Jane McCormick received the "Community Involvement" Award
from the Suburban Community Channels in White Bear Lake, Minnesota for Hosting, Producing and Editing of Breaking My Silence programs.
McCormick tells her story not to titillate but to help younger women decide not to enter prostitution, to show them that getting out is way harder than getting in, and to give hope for escape to those already on the prowl. She envisions change in federal and local laws regarding the sex-trade industry as well as a place where postituting women might find the refuge and the help to put their lives in order.
"Powerful and compelling stuff -- with a ring of authenticity"
"Told in a gritty and blunt style, a name-dropper sure to raise eye-brows, if not some controversy"
