October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM)
Silent Witness Vigil
The Silent Witness Initiative began in 1990 with the purpose of remembering the names and stories of domestic violence fatalities. Now it takes place in all 50 states and at least 23 countries.
Each year, SAFE San Juans has up a Silent Witness exhibit in Friday Harbor, Eastsound, and Lopez Village to honor the victims, raise awareness, and advocate for change.
With so much heaviness this year, we are temporarily suspending this practice. In all likelihood, we will resume the Silent Witness display in 2021.
