As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence is hosting our annual Candlelight Vigil on Tuesday, October 21st at 6:00 PM. This important event commemorates those who have lost their lives as a result of domestic violence and, in addition, gives voice to those who are still being affected. The event begins at 6:00 PM with a short march through the community. We have two starting locations to choose from:
Continental Army Plaza Park - South 4th Street & Roebling Street
The Bark Against Violence is sponsored by the Alice Paul House, Indiana County's Victim Service Center, and the Indiana County Humane Society. The Bark Against Violence will open with a presentation from Indiana County's District Attorney who works diligently to put and end to domestic violence. A survivor of domestic violence will also discuss her own experiences and how difficult it was to leave her dog to escape abuse.
The Austin/Travis County Family Violence Task Force is asking the community to stand up against family and dating violence by joining us at the fourth annual Paddle Parade. This is a family friendly event and there will be free paddle board, canoe and kayak rentals for attendees.
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.
On Saturday, October 11, 2014, at 9 a.m., the Orange County Domestic Violence Task Force will hold its annual awareness event and walk in Harbor Park (located in the lakefront area of Baldwin Park at the end of New Broad Street). The purpose of the event is to share resources to assist in eliminating abuse in our community. It is also a time where we remember and honor those who have lost their lives as victims of domestic violence. This is a city/police department hosted event.
