Community Event: HopeWorks Domestic Violence Awareness Month Candlelight Vigil

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. HopWorks of Howard County has invited those interested in our UUCC to join them on Thursday, October 29, from 7-8pm via Zoom to mourn the lives lost to DV/IPV and envision a world free from violence. The event will be live-streamed on the HopeWorks Facebook page.

About this Event

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Across the nation, local communities will engage in various campaigns to alert the public about this social issue. On October 29th, we come together to both mourn those whose lives have been lost to domestic violence/intimate partner violence and also to solidify our communities in our own capacity to envision a world free from gender based violence.

During a time when survivors are forced to shelter-in-place with their abusers, it’s more important than ever that we take gender-based violence prevention on as a community issue. Our duties as community members are to protect one another and engage ourselves and youth in the techniques they need to end the cycle of violence. We can only do this if as a community we work to envision the world we want to live in.

Join us as we celebrate those lives lost to intimate partner violence/domestic violence and ignite our community in its own power to #EndTheViolence.
