One Billion Rising Town Hall Meeting!

Recently I spoke at the One Billion Rising Town Hall Meeting at the King Center! Laura Turner Seydel and Bernice King were hosting the event. The event was about why we should continue to rise against violence against women and girls.

Here I am speaking!
I also showed my video I made to capture the spirit of V-day and One Billion Rising. If you haven't seen it yet, check out my previous post HERE.

It was such an honor to be part of this wonderful event!
