Every week I receive tons of submissions from listeners who want to nominate a woman they know, who rocks. This week I feature Leslie Morrow who was nominated by her sister Lisa. Leslie is heavily involved in her community through various organizations, but spends a lot of her time helping survivors of sexual assault. Listen to her story to hear why she is a WCSX “Woman Who Rocks”!
In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter from Turning Point Macomb. This week we tackle a variety of topics as usual. The holiday season is a joyous time for most, but how to you make everyone feel included? Each family is unique and Cyndy breaks down ways to make everyone feel like they belong in your home or at your holiday dinner table.
Cyndy and I also discuss the rape culture and how one school got themselves in hot water for showing a “consent” video that didn’t sit well with parents.
And finally, what is a psychiatric hold? Could it be used to prevent people with mental issues from committing crimes? The latest involving a Hollywood celebrity has raised this question.
Turning Point is ALWAYS here to help!!!!!!
