Crash Into Me by Liz Seccuro

Since the publication of her memoir Crash Into Me, Liz has appeared on national television, radio, blogs, and in magazines, sharing her story and discussing ways to shift the paradigm of sexual violence.

In 2011, Liz received the Shining Star/Vision Award from Boston’s Victim Rights Law Center and in November 2012 was honored by SAVI/NYC of Mt. Sinai Hospital for her advocacy, joining past honorees including prosecutor and author Linda Fairstein, Trisha Meili (the “Central Park Jogger”), and actress Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

In January 2013, Seccuro was named to the national advisory board of the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) and continues to lobby on Capitol Hill with RAINN on behalf of survivors of violent crime. She is at work on a number of projects on the scourge of the NFL’s culture of violence, and the epidemic of sexual abuse in Hollywood.

Since moving to California in 2017, Liz is giving time and support to the Santa Monica Rape Crisis Center, and its offshoot, Stuart House, dedicated to the well-being of victims of child sex abuse. Liz is also at work bringing two adaptations of her story to the small screen.

To help continue spreading a message of hope and lobbying for better legislation, Liz is often a guest and expert on The Today Show, CNN, FOX, ABC, NBC and has told her story for shows like Dateline and Deadline and most recently, Vanity Fair Confidential. A three-page excerpt from her book also ran in Marie Claire amongst publications including NY Daily News, Daily Beast, Time and The Guardian.
