Tiki Finlayson will be the keynote speaker at the 12th annual Crime Victims' Rights Luncheon on Tuesday, April 9, 11:30 a.m. 

Kevin Daniel Yates was hit head on by a drunk driver on July 31, 2011.  He died as a result of his injuries less than 32 hours after the wreck on August 1, 2011.  In memory of Kevin, his brother Derek Yates and mother Tiki Finlayson, founded "1N3" within days of the crash, because 'one in three of us are impacted by drunk driving.' They are "1N3," and wanted to do more than change the laws pertaining to driving under the influence.  They wanted to change the lives of the people who are impacted by it through drug and alcohol awareness, addiction recovery and grief recovery.
