Before she was killed this spring, Judge Thomas Mann’s daughter, Grace, fought for what was right and advocated for sexual assault survivors.
“She can’t do that anymore, so I’m going to,” Mann told George Mason University students Tuesday evening at the second annual Fear 2 Freedom event, which raises awareness for sexual assault prevention.
It was the first time the Fairfax County juvenile and domestic relations court judge spoke publicly about his only daughter, who was killed in April. A housemate is charged with homicide in the case. Grace Mann would have been a senior at the University of Mary Washington this year.
