Last Night’s Domestic Violence Vigil Was Powerful

27 Oct

Last night’s Helpmate and the YWCA MotherLove program held a powerful domestic violence vigil at the YWCA. Everyone in attendance was visibly moved. Awareness was raised through speakers and a survivor’s harrowing testimonial. MotherLove participants created hearts with the name and age of each of the 56 people killed by a family member this year in North Carolina. As the teens read the names, the hearts were posted to a giant sign which read, “One Life Lost is One Too Many.” The Clothesline Project and the Silent Witness exhibit were also on display. Helpmate offered information and resources. There are more photos from the Vigil on our Facebook page.
