The “Silent No More” Candlelight Vigil is a time for the community to come together to rally, reflect and, most importantly, remember those who lost their lives in the past year to domestic violence in our state. Vigils are held throughout the nation during October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, to mourn lives tragically lost and motivate the community to join efforts to end domestic and dating violence.
