Her Voice of Courage Benefit Show was held on May 31, 2014 at Haus of Godspeed in Oakland, CA, to fundraise for Pacific Links Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to the mission of ending the trafficking of youth in Vietnam. The show was intended to build a bridge between human trafficking survivors and members of the community. By posing the question, "what is courage?", we hoped to explore the overlap of all beings.

 

What is courage?

 

 Through spoken word, dance, music, and film, we created an inclusive experience of courage.
