March in downtown Jacksonville to support 23 coming forward to file sexual abuse allegations
About 200 people marched along Bay Street Tuesday morning before 27 requests for prosecution were filed in sexual abuse allegations.
Kaye Smith, founder of ReClaim Global, addressed the media in front of Jacksonville’s Police Memorial Building. The documents request prosecution against assailants who 23 women say sexually abused them.
The goal behind the filings is to show that those who commit these crimes will not be protected by their victims’ silence, according to the news release. Read More..

From the steps of the Police Memorial Building, you could hear the promise to stop child sex abuse.
“No more — silent crimes, silent children,” the crowd of more than one hundred chanted.
“I am a victim. I have five perpetrators,” said Renee Matt. She is one of 23 women asking police to investigate and prosecute their childhood abusers.
The women delivered their request for prosecution forms to JSO Tuesday morning. They say it step one in breaking the silence. Some in the crowd carried signs noting “I told on you.” Read More..

A group from ReClaim Global, Inc. Marched through Downtown Jacksonville Tuesday. They were on a mission to shed light on a dark crime, child sex abuse.
Founder Dr. Kaye Smith said, “How could something as despicable as these things happen to them when they were defenseless children?
Dr. Smith stood in front of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and handed an aide a stack of papers to turn in to the police. Inside the envelope were more than two dozen requests for prosecution, the stories of more than two dozen women who were abused as children, ready to out their abusers as adults. Read More..
They thought they got away with it. They thought no one would ever find out about their dirty little acts: the secrets that they expected their young victims to keep silent about all their lives.
But neither their threats, nor the shame that their victims once held, carry weight any longer with the twenty-three women between the ages of 28-65 who will be sending their 27 perpetrators some very shocking news on February 7th.
“We will be silent no more. We are reporting you – you vile, filthy, perverts,” said ReClaim Global founder, Dr. Kaye M. Smith during a press conference in Jacksonville today. Read More..
