“We made it out, but so many didn’t,” said author Stephanie Land’s daughter after viewing the first two episodes of MAID on Netflix. Land’s trajectory from single mother living in poverty to successful author and now celebrity is a rarity indeed.
Land not only escaped an abusive relationship, she also forged a path to safety, lifted herself out of poverty and broke the cycle of violence for her children. Though she no longer worries about putting food on the table, she recognizes and speaks out about the numerous challenges and injustices those in situations like hers face when on government assistance.
Join us virtually next Thursday, June 23 to hear about Land’s journey as a single mother, the challenges she faced trying to make ends meet, how the Netflix series came to be, and the impact on her wellbeing.
