Not Going Quietly

Not Going Quietly

We explore the searing truths behind the topics everyone's talking about, resist the assumptions that thwart our empathy and understanding, and celebrate the love that sustains us. Nothing's off limits, as we're held hostage to hope by our inspirational guests and mutual vulnerability. Join us as we learn to be the change we've been seeking. Together.
