To empower and assist those fleeing and transitioning out of religious and spiritual abuse
Some religious texts tell the story of Queen Vashti of Persia. Vashti defied her husband and king, and thus her spiritual authority, in order to stand up for herself and preserve her dignity. Though she sacrificed everything by her decision, her legend remains an inspiration for others who find their voice and flee oppression
