REDDING, Calif. - Tara Bay, who survived being strangled by her boyfriend 12 years ago, spoke in front of a packed room during a strangulation prevention training hosted by One Safe Place and the National Family Justice Center Alliance.
Bay relived her experience and told the crowd how she survived, recanting the process of healing, telling people she leaned on family for support. She said as she walked into the room on Wednesday, she felt an overwhelming sense of joy and support.
"It's very empowering to feel like you have gone through something very traumatic and horrific and to be able to come out the other side of that, as someone who's strong and independent and is now providing help towards people who are trying to be there for other people is incredibly, incredibly powerful," Bay said.
