October has come to be recognized as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. As you may know, domestic violence impacts one in four families here in Hunterdon County. Safe in Hunterdon will partner with community members to honor and remember those who have suffered or continue to be affected by family violence at our annual Candlelight Vigil. We hope that you can join us to light the candle of change to end this affliction which touches us all.
Safe in Hunterdon has been serving victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse for over thirty years. Our Candlelight Vigil has always been an important and emotionally powerful yearly event. This special evening in October is an opportunity for all of us to stand in solidarity to create positive social change.
Several speakers, musical performances including a children’s choir, and artwork will be featured. Light refreshments and finger foods will be offered for our guest’s enjoyment.
On average, 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner.
On a typical day, more than 20,000 calls are placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.
Children are involved or present during 30 percent of all reported domestic violence offenses.
Please join us. We look forward to seeing you.
