Humanity CAN heal what it will first acknowledge. 

20 months after the hate-fueled attack at Pulse, 3 courageous women — a Muslim reformer, a Jewish feminist and an ex-Muslim — who have each been personally affected by violence, understand this essential principle and have joined hands and hearts to begin a candid and courageous conversation on healing after trauma. Each of these women assert that sensitive and fearlessly honest discourse is a moral imperative and a necessary pathway for healing and hope.
