Imagination Theater (IT) does amazing work with schools in Chicago talking with youth about safe and unsafe touch, healthy relationships, and sexual abuse. As an educator who works closely with IT, it's clear to me the positive impact the organization has on youth. Prior to the show, many youth were unclear about the difference between harassment and flirting. Others felt empowered to know they had a right to bodily autonomy - something youth are not often told. After the show, a safe room featuring counselors from our organization helps children who have experienced sexual abuse find help, with those who disclose often telling our counselors that they would not have come forward had it not been for Imagination Theater. IT does incredible work in Chicago to help prevent child sexual abuse, as well as gives survivors a way to get services.
