Brianna Dennis, ’13 at Hope’s Wings
As a Peace and Social Justice Major I interned at Hope’s Wings, a shelter for women fleeing domestic violence in Madison County. The shelter does not only help women in the county but any woman that needs a safe place to be while getting back on her feet. I chose this internship because I wanted to learn one way in which communities are taking action against domestic violence. I have been able to learn the stories of many women who are walking miracles. I have also been able to view how women and their children are able to rebuild life after such a traumatic event. I am grateful for this experience because it will help me to understand what policies and changes to the system need to be made and actively advocated for. This knowledge will greatly help me in my future career.
