Together we can make a difference.

The first Meet Us at the Bridge (MUATB) took place in October 2005. 

This event has two purposes: 

  1. Recognize individuals and groups in the community who use their time and talents to combat domestic violence

  2. Honor those who have lost their lives to domestic violence in the last year. 

Meet Us at the Bridge is held in October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month and is typically held on a Saturday at 10:00 a.m. on the west side of the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge. Our 2019 event will be held on October 5th at 10:00 am. Please join us!
