KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Dozens of people took to the streets Saturday morning to put up posters to bring awareness to domestic violence.
The volunteer effort was organized by the Knoxville Family Justice Center.
Organizers say the posters are a way to educate people about violent relationships and let folks know where they can find help.
"I can tell you, it's something where if you are going through it, you don't always know this is what you're in the middle of. So, we need to raise the awareness for people who are in this, to know that is me. I do need the help,'" Executive Director Amy Dilworth explains.
Organizers are also hoping the posters will attract more volunteers to help out at the facility.
