DVSN’s Voices of Hope Candlelight Vigil
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month – a special time for us to recognize the staggering truth that more than 12 million people are victims of domestic violence in the United States each year. These victims are women, men, and children of all ages from all religions, cultures, and sexual orientation. The problem crosses all socioeconomic levels. Our small suburban communities are not immune.
In the past year, Massachusetts lost the lives of more than 20 women, children, and men to domestic violence. The lives of these victims will be commemorated at a special vigil held by Domestic Violence Services Network, Inc. (DVSN), together with the Sudbury Wayland Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable.
Light in the Darkness Candlelight Vigil will be held on Thursday, October 26th at 6:30 pm at the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, 390 Lincoln Rd., Sudbury, MA. The public is welcome. A light dinner will be served following the ceremony.
