Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington is doing her part in raising awareness about the realities of domestic violence.

Miz Washington also explained to People why she is clearly so passionate about this collaboration:

The 39-year-old dished:

"There was a period before Scandal when I went into the wilderness. There was a lot of toxicity in my life, people I needed to let go of in a personal way, in a business way.
