About this Episode

In this very special episode of the Queencast: Soha, Debra, and Michael have a powerful and candid discussion with Avalon Sutherland from Louisville, KY organization Derby City Consent about her own journey as a sexual assault survivor and how she uses her experience, strength, and hope to help others who have gone through similar experiences. She also explains the nature of her project and gives the rest of us helpful information on how we can better help and support the people in our lives who have gone through traumatic experiences.
