Elizabeth Smart made national headlines when she was kidnapped and held captive for months. Now, she has become an advocate for change.

Smart will headline a free virtual event called "No Excuse for Abuse" on Tuesday.

The virtual event will be hosted by Ferd and Gladys Alpert Jewish Family Service at 7 p.m.

Event attendees will also hear from leaders of a teen dating abuse and bullying prevention program.

The money raised will help community members from Boynton Beach to Vero Beach suffering from abuse.
