A vigil was held in remembrance of people whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence crime. The names and tragic stories of 17 victims from various communities were read aloud for all to hear to show that this is a problem that takes on many forms, affects every community and can happen to any family or in any relationship. It takes a community effort to one day ending domestic violence, and it starts with increasing awareness and learning more about what we can all do together.
