Elizabeth Smart Still Advocating for Solutions

Elizabeth Smart 

FLORENCE – The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time.  Elizabeth was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth back to her family on March 12, 2003, after being held a prisoner for 9 grueling months.

Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction recovery programs, and National legislation. Elizabeth triumphantly testified before her captor and the world about the very private nightmare she suffered during her abduction, which led to conviction.

The Founder of the “Elizabeth Smart Foundation”, Elizabeth has also helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions.

Hear Elizabeth Smart tell her story on Tuesday, September 28 at 7pm at the Marriott Shoals Conference Center.
