For LIBERATION IS HERE BY NIKOLE LIM
Thank you for taking a look at this discussion guide for my book, Liberation is Here. My book captures my journey of learning to live, love, and lead in a violent world. Through the stories in this book, I hope that you experience a sense of transformation in the same ways that I have. I hope that my failures, learnings and experiences of advocating with survivors of sexual violence challenge you in a new way. I hope these stories also give you hope—seeing how your liberation is interconnected with the liberation of the oppressed among us. I prepared this discussion guide for you to start conversations in a group setting or to use for your own personal reflection. Choose the questions that resonate with you most and lead with your own story with authenticity, honesty, and vulnerability.
Liberation Is Here is the story of Nikole Lim’s journey as an idealistic freelance filmmaker. Her career allowed her to step in and out of the lives of people who had experienced oppression around the world. But when confronted with the prevalence of sexual violence in Kenyan and Zambian communities, she commits to advocating alongside the courageous survivors whose lives have intersected with her own.
Illustrated with dramatic full-color photography from Lim’s own camera, Liberation Is Here transports us to forgotten corners of the world. Her journey proves that liberation is not just near, but it is here—in the eyes of the broken, the hearts of the oppressed, and the untold stories of our global community.
