In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett joins White House Advisor on Domestic Violence, Lynn Rosenthal, to host leaders who are dedicating their professional lives to ending domestic violence in their communities.
Becca Stevens, founder of Magdalene & Thistle Farms, was honored as one of the Champions of Change on October 20, 2011.
Thistle Farms is a social enterprise of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction. Thistle Farms houses the bath and body care company, Thistle Stop Café and paper and sewing studios. All proceeds support Thistle Farms and the residential program, Magdalene. The community provides housing, food, healthcare, therapy and education, without charging residents or receiving government funding. Thistle Farms and Magdalene stand as a witness to the truth that in the end love is the most powerful force for change.
