The event is a part of the Women’s World Summit Foundation International 19 Days of Activism for the Prevention of Violence toward Children and Youth.

Paul Mongold, Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office Detective Andrea Knox, Domestic Violence Program Court Advocate Sarahi Green, and Child Advocacy Center Community Education Coordinator Brittnie Noble.
