TRIGGER WARNING: Abuse and addiction references.

Often times, women of color aren’t represented properly or advocated for when dealing with the justice system. They’re typically dismissed, wrongly accused, and ignored altogether.

Molly shares how she’s battled ending negative cycles from her own parenting experience, dealing with an abusive father and the justice system, the impacts that abuse has had in her personal life, and how adopting truth and neglecting judgment leads to healing.
