Thursday, 25 November 2021 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

In this episode, Kitty digs deep into her experience with family violence and shares how she found a way out of it.  In sharing her story, Kitty hopes to empower everyone to know that there is another life outside of violence and that we should never put up with any form of abuse.
