PLYMOUTH — Voices Against Violence, a regional crisis services agency in Plymouth, will host a Candlelight Vigil to honor the men, women and children who have lost their lives due to domestic violence in the State of New Hampshire. The Vigil begins at 7 p.m. October 10 on the Plymouth Town Common.
Participants will present a victim's story, invite survivors and others to speak, and read the names of New Hampshire residents who have lost their lives within the last year as a result of domestic violence. A moment of silence will follow.
Voices board member Patricia Rella will talk about the relevance of the organization's name. She says, "Voices" symbolizes the unity of the voices of our community coming together to speak out against domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. Our voices educate and reach out to survivors and let them know they are not alone."
In addition, participants are invited to visit The Clothesline Project, a display of decorated t-shirts that bear witness to the violence against victims of domestic and sexual violence, bullying and stalking. During the public display on the Plymouth Common, which runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. October 10, a clothesline will be hung with the shirts. Each shirt represents a particular person's experience, as expressed by a survivor or by someone who cares about them. Anyone is welcome to make their own t-shirt. Supplies will be provided.
Voices Against Violence is one of 14 members of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (www.nhcadsv.org). Voices is southern Grafton County's resource for the most up-to-date information, state and federal guidelines and best practices around the issues of domestic and sexual violence, harassment, stalking, human trafficking and bullying. Voices Against Violence volunteers and staff maintain a 24-hour crisis line and a crisis shelter for victims and their families. The organization's mission is to break the cycle of violence by providing comprehensive services for all victims and survivors and by creating social change through education and action.
