WFMY News 2 -- In May, three-year-old Kilah Davenport suffered a horrific attack that damaged 90 percent of her brain.
Police say her step-father attacked her, broke her collar bone and fractured her little skull, damaging 90 percent of her brain.
The maximum punishment for abuse like this is only 7 and a half years in prison, and many think that's too lenient.
A group of supporters is hoping to strengthen the punishment, and they are traveling across North Carolina to gain support for a bill called "Kilah's Law."
The legislation would increase the punishment for anyone who causes permanent injury to a child.
"We just don't feel like the sentence fits the crime, and that's what Kilah's Law is, to increase the punishment from a Class C felony to a Class B felony. That change would mean when someone commits a crime that causes debilitating injuries like this, they can get from 25 years up to life in prison, " said Mitzi Cartrette, a Kilah's Law supporter.
The bill will be presented when the legislature reconvenes at the end of January.
The Justice For All Coalition is starting its call for support Friday at 10:30 a.m.
The group will be presenting the proposed law to the public at the New Hope Methodist Church in Winston-Salem.
The church is on Shattalon Drive.
