It’s been five years since a farmer in Albermarle County found the body of 20-year-old Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.

Now, the nonprofit founded by Harrington’s parents is selling T-shirts to promote personal safety education and advocacy.

Help Save the Next Girl operates out of the Harrington family’s basement in Roanoke and the home of Harrington’s art teacher in Blacksburg.

On Monday, the group begins selling its “Team Justice” T-shirts. Click here to learn more from the organization.


Harrington disappeared while attending a concert in Charlottesville in October 2009.

Ian Heflin with the nonprofit says it began with 20 people and now has 20 chapters.
