There are more then 5,000 deaths and over 130,000 injuries caused each year by semi accidents. As victims,
we are joining others at The Sorrow to Strength Conference which will
be held in Washington D.C., March 10-13. During this conference, we will get
the opportunity to address Congress on Capital Hill.
Days following Janelle's death, many of her friends searched for answers and
ways to help. With your help, they will get that chance as they too
have been invited to participate in the Sorrow to Strength Conference.
Many of these kids are not old enough to vote. They will, however get
their opportunity to have their voices heard as they too will be
allowed to address Congress on Capital Hill and make a difference in this country.
We are in the process of setting up fund raisers to help cover the cost for
these kids to go. We will be selling "JusticeforJanelle" T-Shirts,
which are currently in the process of being ordered. The money earned,
will go towards hotel, food and travel expenses.
Any money left over
will be donated to the Truck Safety Coalition in efforts to improve truck safety.
