The Hamilton County Coroner attended a free screening of the film Bully on Sunday afternoon.
Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco wants to bring the issue of child abuse to the forefront in response to recent child abuse and deaths in Hamilton County.
"I think it's important for people to see that this really is a serious problem and it's not just a rite of passage," Eve Pearl of the Council on Child Abuse.
The film is being sponsored by the Council on Child Abuse as a part of Child Abuse Awareness Month.
