LouAnn, 2017 Utah Mother of the Year, was inspired by the presentation given during the 2017 National Convention and decided that was something she wanted to work on during her year as Utah Mother of the Year. She contacted several groups throughout the state to see what could be done to work together. She finally decided that something had to be done to raise awareness of this issue in Utah. She contacted the Utah Attorney General’s office and worked with them for several months to create a proclamation.
