SILENT WITNESS PROJECT
Our Savior’s will be hosting the Silent Witness Project this Sunday to mark Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. In 1990, the Silent Witness Initiative began promoting and education to support an end to domestic violence through community based exhibits. It started with a small group of volunteers in one state and grew into an international presence, with projects in all 50 states and 23 countries. Silent Witness International is the leading voice that honors the lives of domestic violence homicide victims through family support, community connections, and advocacy for change. Many men and women die each year in acts of domestic violence in the United States. Each one has a story. The project involves life-sized silhouettes of people who have died through domestic violence.
