LTL Ep. 12: Mom-of-4 Turned Education Advocate (ft. Kayla Svedin)

Kayla Svedin is a mother of four who became a fearless education advocate because she had to — her daughter needed it. She is the founder of Empowered Arizona Families and has emerged as a strong voice for educational freedom (and predictably found herself in the cross-hairs of status quo protectors.) She refuses to back down.

She talked to Erika about why she is so committed to the cause of empowering parents and protecting children.
