I will now be going to Washington DC to testify in the Congressional Hearing on May 20th….truly honored :)
We did it!!!
I got a call last night from Representative Jackson Lee’s office saying their will be a hearing on May 20th. I unfortunately won’t be able to attend for numerous reason. I am disappointed because this is something I am truly passionate about and I would love to see it through to the end since I have come this far, however; sometimes tough decision have to be made.
I am working with Human Rights Watch and Jackson Lee’s office to see what other options I have. For Example…writing a letter that would be shared in the hearing.
It is a GREAT feeling to see something you worked so hard on actually happen. I feel like I am really playing a part in making a difference for myself, women, and all Rape Victims!
