Rape Crisis turns to napkins to help spread message

It was Wednesday afternoon around lunch time and with the fair weather the patio at Maggie’s Restaurant, in Westminster, was packed with diners as Katy Tote walked up. But it wasn’t a bite that brought Tote, the Outreach Specialist for Rape Crisis Intervention Service of Carroll County, to the restaurant: She was there to deliver napkins.

“The napkins say, ‘If you see something, say something. Be an active bystander,’ and they also have our 24-hour hotline number,” Tote said. “This is our bystander campaign, where we are trying to get people to be better bystanders in our community.”
