Melissa Smith, Director of Administration at Durham Jones & Pinegar, rappels 18 stories down the Hilton Building in downtown Salt Lake to help bring awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault within our communities.
DJP raised $2,500 this year as part of the YWCA Over the Edge challenge. Donations go the Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center at the YWCA to help women and men in abusive relations, as well as victims of sexual assault. The Center, along with 14 partners, provide free and confidential professional services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and elder abuse.
Their mission is to reduce domestic violence by strengthening victim safety and increasing offender accountability through community collaboration and accessible, co-located, victim-centered services.
