Sarah Camille Soltani Icely started this petition to Town of Summerville

Countless women have been subject to incidences on the sawmill trail that have made them feel unsafe, or left them traumatized. I personally have had several creepy things happen to me- one involving a guy coming out from the woods and exposing himself. I know of another poor woman who was raped. Although her attacker is in prison, nothing was done to our trail to make it safer. When I shared my story with a summerville group on facebook, I was SHOCKED at how many women mentioned that they too were victimized on the Sawmill trail too. So many women are afraid to use this beautiful trail, and I know when I personally use it I am looking over my shoulder every few minutes. Police have only found and arrested very few of these men who target single women who walk/run/and cycle the sawmill branch trail. Women of Summerville should feel safe to use this this beautiful outdoor recreational trail provided to our town, without having to constantly fear for their safety. Many break ins also occur in the neighborhoods off this trail at night. Please sign this petition to bring security cameras, emergency phone stations, and lights to the Sawmill Branch Trail. I believe adding these to the trail will keep our town together in a healthy way, but will also deter attackers, violence and theft from happening. We need signatures from women and men! Thank you for joining us and may we rise up to bring our town together and Summerville healthy and safe!
