Annual Community Vigil for Domestic Violence Awareness
PLEASE JOIN US
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Women’s Support Services (WSS) will hold its Annual Community Vigil on Thursday, October 6th, at 6:30 pm. Each year, we commemorate residents of Connecticut who have lost their lives to domestic violence / intimate partner violence.
This year we will meet at Community Park (10 Sharon Road) at the corner of Rts. 41 & 44 in Lakeville for a welcome at 6.30 pm. We will then walk to our new offices at 13a Porter Street, where we will hold the remainder of the program and reception.
This year we are partnering with Red Sand Project. Red Sand Project is a participatory art project designed to raise awareness of human trafficking and intersects with the human trafficking curriculum WSS implements in partnership with Region One schools. The project was created by resident Molly Gochman. This part of the evening begins at 6:00 pm.
Parking is available at both Community Park (10 Sharon Road) & behind the Lakeville United Methodist Church (319 Main Street).
