Episode Description

Nikole Lim is a multi-talented creative force and also the founder of Freely in Hope, a nonprofit organization that equips survivors in Africa to grow into leadership and help end the cycle of sexual violence. She is a documentary filmmaker, photographer, and now a published author with her recently-released book Liberation Is Here, which tells both her story and the stories of many women she encountered through her journeys in Kenya and Zambia. In this fascinating conversation, Nikole upends typical archetypes of Christian leadership, calls fellow Asian Americans to a deeper commitment to justice, and shares how some of the most marginalized people on the planet can teach the church about what true liberation means, just as they taught her. You won't forget Nikole once you have the chance to hear this inspiring conversation.
