The local Domestic Abuse Resistance Team has adopted a new approach to this year’s radiothon event set for May 7.
Terrie Queen Autrey, DART community advocate, said the organization was ready for something new.

We were excited by the No More campaign that was launched several years ago by Law & Order’s Mariska Hargitay, and decided to adopt this as our new motto and logo.”
