(Knoxville) WVLT - Monday, the Knoxville Family Justice Center launched its community awareness campaign.

Its called "Speakers Bureau of Volunteers."

Ambassadors from the center will go into community, sharing the issues of domestic violence.

Last year, Knoxville and Knox County answered more than 16,000 emergency calls for domestic violence.

Amy Dilworth with the justice center says there are many ways to help a person in need, "To help people so often we try to fix the problem instead of listening and being there to support those around us."

If you would like to take part in their awareness campaign just call the Knoxville Family Justice Center at (865) 215-6800.

If you need to report domestic violence, call (865) 521-6336.
