In light of too many tragic headlines of domestic violence this year in my area, I was inspired to become involved in this festival. Now, unfortunately my city becomes the next to be engulfed in a flurry of national media attention as yet another young pregnant woman is missing. Jessie Davis's disappearance has reaffirmed why we need this kind of awareness.
I hope anyone who is close to us comes to the festival event. We need to make Canton a safe place for women and girls. For more info on the festival, which takes place all across NE Ohio until July 1st, please visit UTVS
