Tara Ice is the President of Justice for Sierah, and the founder of this wonderful organization. I have watched her over the past 3 years grow and lead this organization through many spectacular achievements. From advocating and passing Sierah’s Law in Ohio, which created a violent offender database, to launching Sierah Strong self defense classes, and working to pave the way for a curriculum based education program for our youth, Tara and her team have worked countless hours building this non-profit. With the huge success of the Sierah Birthday Soirée in February, Justice for Sierah is poised to take a leadership roll in helping our youth be better educated and prepared for the unexpected situations they may face. Under Tara’s leadership and guidance, they will find great success.

I have participated in the Sierah Joughin 5K race for the past 4 years, this year I will be doing it virtually. Anytime that I have had a question about the race, packet pickup, Tara has responded and answered my questions, provided the necessary information. This is a great non profit organization

I have been honored to lend my time to volunteer. It is a project I will continue to help with as many aspects of Justice for Sierah as I possibly can. It is wonderful watch all these young women learn to take an active role in their self defense. It is also great to see so many people come together to raise fund to continue Justice for Sierah's mission whether it be volunteering or being an active participant in the race or the gala.

As an avid volunteer I could have chosen many other nonprofits to give my time, energy, and money to. I chose JFS because of their robust, meaningful, and impactful mission. The leaders of this organization are inspiring and enjoyable to work with. They stick to their mission and core values no matter the obstacles they face. Not to mention they have many fun volunteers to work alongside!

Justice for Sierah came about through a tragedy that happened to our family in 2016. Sierah was abducted a quarter of a mile from her home and three days later found murdered. She was just 20 years old. We turned our grief into positive action and just 2 years later Sierah's Law officially became a law in 2018. This creates a violent offender registry for all Law enforcement in the state of Ohio to use when a child goes missing. We are hoping to pass this law in other states as well. Sierah Strong provides classes for children ages 6-16 teaching the importance of self awareness and self defense tactics to keep them safe. They also receive a Kid Print ID with important information about them along with their finger print. A curriculum based program is being worked on to be used in the schools to reinforce these skills every single year. Justice for Sierah knows that Knowledge is Power and is committed to providing the community with age appropriate classes to protect our youth.

Justice for Sierah's commitment to meaningful change is inspiring. They've created the states first Violent Offender Database, which that alone would have been enough for MOST organizations. But, they aren't most organizations. Justice For Sierah is also working hard to ensure that every child has the training and tools to stay safe through their Sierah Strong program and partnerships with programs like the KidPrint ID.
