Shine A Light On Domestic Violence Vigil, Thursday

October 29th, 2014 by

Untitled-1 copyIn honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month, we are calling on the community to come together to stand for victims of domestic violence. We stand for those who have lost their lives. We stand for those who cannot speak up due to fear of retribution and shame. We stand for the children (forgotten victims) who are exposed.
Please come join us for a candlelight vigil to remember those we have lost due to domestic violence and to recognize domestic violence survivors.
