Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - It is called a Healing Walk. Today at the Cass County Courthouse families gathered to walk in order to bring attention to the victims of rape.

As we told you Tuesday, Malinda Lockner and her daughter Ashlyn are fighting the stigma that goes along with rape. Ashlyn was only three when a Moorhead man molested her at a daycare.

Malinda Lockner – Walk Organizer: “People blame themselves when they are molested or raped, and this is a way to empower them to say, ‘You did not ask for this.’”

The walk is benefitting the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center.
