    Montgomery, AL -

    ONE PLACE Family Justice Center Staff and members of the Montgomery Police Department partnered together to gather purses, hygiene items and cosmetics in honor of MPD Det. Tanisha "Tookie" Pughsley, who lost her life to domestic violence in 2020.

    The purse project, titled "Tookie's Voice: Women on the Run," was started by Pughsley's mother Sharon, to help victims of domestic violence who are fleeing abusive situations.

    “'Women on the Run' is a cause near and dear to my heart because I lost my daughter, Detective Tanisha “Tookie” Pughsley, to a domestic incident, on July 6, 2020," Pughsley said. "Regrettably, she did not get out of this situation with her life. I vowed to pick up the torch and continue her story and her legacy. If Tookie’s Voice can prevent another murder, save a mother, a sister, brother, a daughter, or a son, then my mission is not in vain.

    "Tookie’s Voice needs support from kind partners like you to achieve our mission. Together, we can combat and educate individuals on domestic violence and domestic abuse ...we aim to raise donations for women living in Domestic Violence Shelters to instill permanent, positive change, and propel them toward their best and full potential."

    MPD and ONE PLACE collected purses and items throughout the month of January. The group is pictured here on Jan. 28 with the items. The purses were distributed to local community agencies.
