So looking forward to joining you for this. Dr. Ogega will be with a special guest, her mama, whom you would have met in her book Home Is Us. Storytelling is a core part of our efforts to end violence, working with women and girls of Mpanzi Empowering Women and Girls. Thank you Center for Religious Tolerance and Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center for having us.
