LESSONS FROM MARLEE MATLIN: YOUR STORY CAN NEVER BE SILENCED

On March 30, 1987, Marlee Matlin was awarded an Oscar for her groundbreaking performance in Children of a Lesser God. Long before and long after that day, she was and continues to be an advocate for human rights around the world. 

What I have learned from her example is that you have the right to tell your story. And that no one has the right to silence your story. 

"Silence is the last thing the world will ever hear from me." - Marlee Matlin
