Ericka Downing

Native to Murfreesboro, I am proud to be the Executive Director of the Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Center where our mission is to protect victims, prevent violence, and empower survivors. I am able to make a true impact in the life of a survivor daily and to use my servant’s heart in everything that I do. I am passionate about empowering others to use their voice and to tell their own story. There is power in supporting others and in lifting them up to see the strength that lies within. I am extremely grateful to serve in a community that stands behind survivors.
