Submitted by the Domestic Violence Support Network
A Candlelight Vigil sponsored by the Domestic Violence Support Network will honor Massachusetts lives lost to domestic violence during the past year. The vigil will take place at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 in Concord’s Monument Hall.
Renee Graham, contributing Op-Ed writer for the Boston Globe, will share a talk based on her August 17 article, “In this ‘war on women’ the death count mounts“, questioning the media’s role and responsibility in reporting on domestic violence murders.
An honor guard from Hanscom Air Force Base will participate, and there will be music by the Flyleaf Theater Company. The vigil will be followed by a light repast provided by Trails End Café of Concord.
