Donna Hylton, a criminal justice reform advocate, is speaking at a movie screening ‘A Walk to Freedom’, on Wednesday (04/26) at Fortune Society, Long Island City, N.Y.

The movie tells Donna Hylton’s first person interview about the childhood abuse she endured, the spiral of events that lead to her incarceration, and how she learned to live, love, and trust all over again.

As a formerly incarcerated individual, she emphasizes the importance of women who have experienced atrocious events to overcome their past traumas and transform their lives.
