Ticket Info for The Radical Self Expression Summit, June 14th in Atlanta

Ticket Info

One of the spectacular things about this summit is that it celebrates women who are willing to turn what they fear into what they solve. They didn’t just face their feelings and then have Aha moments; they took those Aha’s and turned them into healing that the rest of the world can use.  I saw no choice but to bring them together, to heal out loud, and to invite 100 women and men to be part of that public healing. —Akilah S. Richards
