A Beaten Body Can’t Steal Your Soul

Our second LA heroine to share her truth is former haute couture model, current urban organic farmer, and indestructible force of unconditional love Renee Gunter. She’s a SURVIVOR (and the all caps are necessary) who was brutally abused starting at the age of two and then endured the loss of five of her babies as she fought her way to become a nurturing, supportive mom, not only to her two children, but to her hometown in South LA.

To see how Renee’s vigilant spirit soared in the face of sexual assault, ​death, and racism, watch her video above.

With warmth and love,
Elisa & Lily
