Academy-award winning actor and proud mother, Halle Berry, boasts 18 years of hard work with the domestic violence prevention and intervention organization, The Jenesse Center. Berry pays homage to a mother from the non-profit organization in this touching Dear Mama highlight.
“The Jenesse Center has been a part of my life now for the past 18 years. It’s an organization that sheds light on the subject that most of us don’t like to talk about. No matter what your economic standing or social status, spousal abuse is a real very real thing.”
Reflecting on the current state of politics, Berry urges, audience members and viewers to support women in need. “In light of what’s going on in our government right now, it’s important that we all stand up and fight to ensure that these women are not left behind and they are not penalized for being victims and dared to have the courage to survive.”
