Empowerment Shoot 2021-b.jpg

A virtual podcast & chat series focused on centering Black voices and experiences. Tune in to listen, learn, and discuss. This week we'll be highlighting ep 13 of Partnered with a Survivor featuring an Interview with Courageous Fire. Podcast hosts interview Courageous Fire, the Executive Director of Courageous Fire LLC, an organization that works exclusively with Black victims & survivors of domestic violence in Iowa. "She is a domestic violence survivor and leader in the movement to create culturally-specific responses to domestic violence in the Black community. Her model of community assistance is self sustaining,  and community driven. She takes cues from the grass roots experiences of Black survivors within her community to bring holistic assistance which isn’t ‘cookie cutter’ but deeply meets those survivors on multiple levels. In an innovative adaptation of the concept of reparations, Courageous Fire believes that domestic violence survivors deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering. She wants the abuse (not just the abusers) to “pay survivors back” in practical and financial terms."
