Silent Witness Project

Posted: Tuesday, September 5, 2017 by: Julian Johnson | Category: Community Interest


On Monday, October 2nd at the Franciscan center on Lourdes University campus, the Bethany House presents the Silent Witness Project at 7 p.m. A national initiative, the Silent Witness Project honors and memorializes girls and women killed in acts of domestic violence perpetuated by husbands, boyfriends or stalkers. In the past decade, more than 60 such murders have occurred in this region.

This year’s theme focuses on the response of communities to domestic violence. Prior to the Unveiling Ceremony, a cross-section of religious leaders will deliver affirmations of commitment to helping domestic violence victims, supporting and comforting families, and holding perpetrators accountable, all as seen through the lens of their faith traditions.

For more information on this event, please contact Dr. Mary Krueger, Coordinator of the Northwest Ohio Silent Witness Project at silentwitnessproject@bethanyhousetoledo.org or call 419-727-4948.
