Domestic Violence Victims Honored in New Bedford
Dozens of people marched in silence from New Bedford City Hall to the First Unitarian Church last night, as part of a candlelight vigil in honor of domestic violence victims.
After the vigil, a remembrance service was held inside the Unitarian Church, where stories of abuse and survival were shared. This woman, speaking as Jane Doe, a potential victim of abuse, reminds the public to be aware of the dangers of domestic violence.
In addition to survivor stories and musical tributes, the Clothesline Project, a compilation of victim-created t-shirts was also displayed.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
