Ray County is hosting a Victims Advocate Luncheon at the Eagleton Civic Center in Richmond, located at 1015 W Royle St. Richmond, MO 64085. “It’s a lunch to invite everybody to make sure we are empowering the victims that we have in this community,” said Johnston, “Kristy is our Victim Advocate in the office, she is one of only two in the state that is funded by the MOCKS, I believe, that we get a grant to have her here in the office so we are very lucky to have her. We want to make sure that victims aren’t forgotten in the crimes, instead of just focusing on getting these individuals and not worrying about what’s happening to the victims as well.”

Today’s lunch is free to all who are willing to come out and show support for victims of domestic and sexual assault as well as raise awareness.
