The Sanford Police Department is proud to host the third annual Domestic Violence Awareness Candlelight Vigil. Each year, we partner with the Safehouse of Seminole Domestic Violence Shelter and Seminole County Sheriff's Office to bring people together to remember those who lost their lives, those who fought to save their lives and honor anyone who is affected by domestic violence.
Join us to honor the memories of loved ones lost to domestic violence and to raise awareness of efforts to end violence and assist victims and survivors on St. Croix. Wear purple or a t-shirt with artwork dedicated to your loved one. We will walk the streets of Frederiksted in silence to rally together at the waterfront. Call the Women's Coalition of St. Croix at (340)773-9272 for more information.
This event will take place at the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame in Lansing. Partners include: MSU Safe Place, Capital Area Response Effort, Lansing Police Department, EVE, and the Women's Center of Greater Lansing.

Southwest Iowa Families, Inc. invites the community for a Clothesline Display at the Page County Courthouse Lawn. The Clothesline Project originally started in 1990 due to increased awareness of domestic violence against women. Around this period, 51,000 women were killed by an intimate partner. Today, the project still continues, and T-shirts from women and children are displayed throughout the nation to promote awareness to individuals and the community of the options and resources available to victims.
The Hopevale Church invites the community to attend an event showcasing the tradition of art as a voice for domestic violence survivors. The church lobby will be transformed into an art gallery featuring “The Shoe Exhibit.” Guests will be able to see how art promotes healing for victims of violence. There will be a vigil honoring Saginaw County's homicide victims of domestic violence and a balloon release as a symbol of lost souls. One community member will be honored for their outstanding work while helping victims and for raising awareness about what the community can do to help.
