Our speaker on July 21st is Dorsey Jones!
Growing up in a small South Georgia town, Dorsey Laquan Jones overcame horrific challenges few people can comprehend. Following her father’s drowning, Dorsey was abandoned by her own mother and cast into poverty and homelessness, all while trying to keep her five younger siblings clothed and fed. a bad situation grew immeasurably worse when neighborhood men began abusing Dorsey, ensnaring her in a cycle of sexual exploitation that inflict too many young girls today but is often ignored. Nevertheless, Dorsey escaped, and after years of perseverance, she’s forged a career as a powerful public speaker, author, and of of Georgia’s most compassionate and impactful juvenile advocates. Thanks for joining our network Dorsey!
