Hundreds of people visited the Nickel Plate Amphitheater for the Living Proof concert sponsored by kNot Today and to hear Frank and Linda Reich speak. “We believe one of the best ways to get ahead of this issue is with grassroots efforts to engage, inform and educate,” Linda Reich said in a media release. “This has proven to be a productive way of having an honest and open dialogue about an uncomfortable criminal and social justice issue that has been swept under the rug for far too long.”
