Images from this event.

Gary Lockwood was inspired to produce The Healing Circle after helping a young woman attain justice who lived through ten years of rape and sexual abuse at the hands of her step father. "Her strength amazed me and I felt that I just had to do something to honor her and all survivors.", Lockwood said.

Partnering with Standing Rock Cultural Arts on this program is Townhall II in Kent as well as The Women¹s Resource Center located on Kent State University¹s main campus. It is through both organizations that we hope to raise more awareness to these issues. All profits will go to Townhall II and their programs that deal with sexual assault and rape.
