Learn how each of us can bring truth, light, and value to the world when we speak from the heart.

Matt Pipkin is the founder/CEO of Speak Your Silence, a nonprofit on a mission to conquer the stigma of child sexual abuse. Matt was sexually abused at age 6 and, due to fear, shame, and guilt, kept his experience secret for the next twenty years. After finally sharing his story and seeking counseling a few years back, his life was changed when he discovered the truth about himself – that he is innately infinitely valuable. Matt believes that each of us possesses this same worth and brings truth, light, and value to the world when we speak from the heart.
