With our country going through tumultuous times because of the abuse of power and privilege by persons in the law enforcement and political structures, as ICWM, we women feel called to fulfill our role in bringing about the rule of justice and peace, and relief to victims of violence. Brinelle took us through exercises to understand the dynamics of power to help shape our perspectives in bringing about change in our society and country today.
