850 pairs of slippers collected to promote child abuse awareness

  • Aspen Taylor Hanohano created a visual representation of child victims/witnesses Brave Footsteps to talking about their experiencing by paving the path children walk from the street to the doors of the Children’s Justice Center in Hilo with slippers she collected.

In recognition of National Child Abuse Awareness Month, the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of East Hawaii (FCJCEH) and the Hawaii State Chapter of Children’s Justice Centers (HSCCJC) sponsored a slipper drive during the months of April and May.
