Brooke Axtell, Domestic Abuse Survivor, Gives Inspiring Grammys 2015 Speech (Video)

Brooke Axtell poses in the press room after giving an inspiring speech on stage at the 2015 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Sunday (February 8) in Los Angeles.

The domestic abuse survivor spoke out about her experiences to help promote the White House’s “It’s On Us” campaign.

Brooke is an Austin-based writer, activist, and performance artist who says she was trafficked by her nanny when she was younger and then as an adult, entered an abusive relationship with a man who threatened to kill her.

“Authentic love does not devalue another human being,” Brooke said during her speech. “Authentic love does not silence shame and abuse.”
