Reflections From The White House

As we mentioned before, the founder of Magdalene / Thistle Farms
- Becca Stevens
was honored by The White House as "Champions of Change.”  
The Tennessean interviewed Becca after her visit to the White House
and she had this to say:
“I’m saying the same thing over and over my whole life, 
but to say it in that space feels really special.
I’m grateful that I get to speak my words, 
in that space, 
for the people I represent.”

Below is the official White House video of the event
(Becca's speech is on at 0:56:10)
and you can read a transcript of Becca's speech HERE.
