Show Notes

On this episode of Grow Kinder, host Andrea Lovanhill talks with Scarlett Lewis, chief movement officer of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement. Inspired by a note left by her son Jesse shortly before he was murdered in the Sandy Hook tragedy, Scarlett founded the organization, which advocates teaching kids social-emotional skills to help them make positive choices in challenging situations, have courageous conversations, and respond to difficult situations by “choosing love.”

Scarlett talks with us about her courageous ability to overcome the unthinkable and why social-emotional learning is the answer to preventing future tragedies.
