Local first responders will conduct “A minute without domestic violence” by sounding their sirens for one full minute sending an alarming message of the prevalence of DV in our community. A proclamation, balloon release, and various other poignant reminders of DV will take place in a brief but meaningful assembly. Join us by wearing purple on this day as we show support and solidarity of DV victims and survivors.
