Kristie Dunnigan – Fighting Shame with Intimacy


In isolation, we give room for shame to exist. But when we come together and fill that space with our own stories and experiences, shame is stomped out.

Whether in the shadows of trafficking and sexual exploitation, apathy or a lie of unworthiness, Kristie Dunnigan fiercely fights for people to know their unshakeable worth.

In this Words Matter conversation, Alex and Kristie discuss the value of intimacy and storytelling in fighting shame.

You are not your past. The things that have happened to you don’t get to define your future.
