UT recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The University of Toledo community is honoring and remembering those affected by domestic violence with events in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Life-sized silhouettes created as solemn displays to commemorate victims known as the Silent Witness Project will be on display from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today (Tuesday, Oct. 8) on the steps outside the Student Union on the UT Main Campus. The silhouette displays serve as memorials to girls and women whose lives were ended abruptly and violently at the hands of a husband, ex-husband, partner or stalker.

A Survivor Vigil will conclude the day’s events at 6 p.m. to honor survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to domestic violence.

The Domestic Violence Awareness Month events are coordinated by the UT Sexual Assault Education and Prevention Program.
