kNot Today to Host Next Community Engagement Event in Fishers
Reichs to partner with Nickel Plate District Summer Concert Series to engage, educate community in the battle against child sexual abuse
Indianapolis – This June, Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Frank Reich and his wife, Linda Reich, co-founders of kNot Today, will visit Fishers, Ind. and the Nickel Plate District Summer Concert Series to raise awareness about the scourge of child sexual abuse and exploitation.
The Reich created kNot Today in 2019 to generate awareness, create prevention strategies and help develop innovative healing programs for sexually abused and exploited children in Indiana and across the United States.
As part of the Fishers community engagement event, kNot Today is sponsoring the June 1 concert, featuring local musical group Living Proof, and an appearance by the Reichs, where they will share information about kNot Today’s mission and vision.
|WHEN:||Tues., June 1: 6:30-9:30 p.m.|
|WHERE:||Nickel Plate Downtown Amphitheater, 6 Municipal Dr., Fishers|
|NOTE:||kNot Today staff and personnel will be following current COVID guidelines, including face coverings and physical distancing!|
Last month, kNot Today hosted its first community campaign in Fairmount, Ind., where they partnered with #teamCHESNEYstrong, an effort started by abuse survivor Chesney Shonk of Fairmount.
“The reality is the sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking of children happens in our own communities,” said Linda Reich. “We believe one of the best ways to get ahead of this issue is with grassroots efforts to engage, inform and educate. This has proven to be a productive way of having an honest and open dialogue about an uncomfortable criminal and social justice issue that has been swept under the rug for far too long.”
At kNot Today, their joy and purpose comes from doing what they can to protect the beauty and innocence of childhood. In spite of the challenges of the past year, kNot Today has continued to make tremendous strides in their awareness and prevention efforts, especially with the addition of these community engagement campaigns.
“Join me and the kNot Today team at the event in Fishers to Join the Fight!” said Frank Reich.
