Crystal Judson Family Justice Center marks 10th anniversary

The Crystal Judson Family Justice Center was established ten years ago following Crystal's murder at the hands of her husband. The community came together to grieve and heal, determined to raise awareness of domestic violence in our community and create a place of strength, courage and hope after such a horrific loss.

The Center will mark its 10th anniversary with an open house on Thursday, May 5 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Special guests include Senator Maria Cantwell, Congressman Derek Kilmer, First Lady Trudi Inslee and members of the Judson family.

“Over the past decade, the Center has become a refuge and source of help for domestic violence victims and their children,” said Rick Talbert, Chair of the Center’s Executive Board and Pierce County Councilmember. “Thousands of women and men from throughout the state of Washington and beyond have come to the Center for support in times of great need.”

Through a network of community and governmental partners co-located at the Center, clients are able to access a wide array of services in a warm, welcoming and safe environment.
