October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is an opportunity for all of us to join the conversation and show that we care about victims of domestic violence. We are the voice for the domestic violence homicide victims who can no longer speak for themselves, and our voices can break the silence for victims currently experiencing domestic or sexual violence.
The public is invited to the annual Candlelight Vigil, Tues., 10/22, at 6 p.m. on the steps of New Bedford City Library, 613 Pleasant Street, and march in silence to the Unitarian Church where a program to remember victims of domestic violence homicide will be held, including the Clothesline Project.
For 45 years, The Women’s Center has provided comprehensive services to victims and a full complement of training and educational programs for schools, colleges, organizations and community service providers. All services are free and confidential.
