A child abuse awareness advocate waves a sign reading “grandchildren go to Howard Snow” outside of the Yadkin County Courthouse on Jan. 24. The protesters were present in support of Howard Snow, Sr. who was having a custody hearing that day to try to gain exclusive custody of his grandchildren.
Members of the Bikers Against Child Abuse Capital and Foothills Chapters, child abuse awareness advocate Gail Boyce and Justice For All Campaign founder Jeff Gerber stand outside of the Yadkin County Courthouse in support of Howard Snow, Sr., who is trying to obtain custody of his grandchildren from his son. Advocates say that the grandchildren have been physically and mentally abused.
Protesters paced back and forth along Elm Street in Yadkinville waving their signs to passersby on Highway 601. They hope to raise awareness about child abuse and North Carolina’s policies on reunification over the safety of the child from its abusers.
