Domestic violence vigil to be held in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury – A vigil to remember victims and survivors, and to raise awareness about domestic violence will be held Wednesday, Oct. 11, from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. at the Shrewsbury common, Main Street and Route 140 (rain location – First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury, adjacent to the common).

Leaders from the community and state officials will speak about how their respective offices work to prevent domestic violence, assist victims, and hold perpetrators accountable. Domestic violence affects a broad spectrum of our society, but it is largely unrecognized or worse, tolerated. The Shrewsbury community is invited to join in the vigil to remember those who have suffered domestic violence and to express a unity of purpose to eliminate domestic violence. The vigil is sponsored by ADVISE (Against Domestic Violence in Shrewsbury Education project). Additional details and updates on this event may be found by calling the ADVISE Hotline at 508- 842-0056.
