Rape Crisis Center celebrates more than 40 years of service at ‘Pearls of Power’ Gala


A strong show of support for the Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal Empire turned out on Friday night.
The organization celebrated more than 40 years of service to the community with its annual Pearls of Power Gala. The guest speaker was Kym Worthy, a prosecutor in Wayne County, Michigan who was featured in the HBO film, “I Am Evidence,” a documentary about the backlog of untested rape kits around the country.
Calling the situation a national pandemic and a health crisis, Worthy encouraged supporters of the Rape Crisis Center to remain passionate about helping survivors.
