AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Several local women moved their feet in order to protect those in danger.

With each step, ladies fought against an ongoing problem among women and men; domestic violence.

The organization Sisterhood Diary held the event at the Jessye Norman Amphitheater.

Organizers say this walk lets women know there is a better way than staying in a violent or deadly relationship with an abuser.

“We are trying to get women in a safe environment and raise money for Anna’s House. That’s their safe haven,” says founder Karen Robinson.

Organizers say the home is in its early fundraising stages. It will house women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
