She Screams Without Sound Candlelight Vigil


She Screams Without Sound Candlelight Vigil & March

October 11 2017 - 6:15pm 

Hamilton County Court House

She Screams Without Sound was established in 1988, when more than 20 Hamilton County women were killed by their intimate partners. Alarmed by the devastating number of victims, employees of Women Helping Women and the YWCA decided to do something to raise awareness in the community and in the Hamilton County court system.

A candlelight vigil memorial has been held every October since 1988 during Domestic Violence Awareness Month to honor the victims, both known and unknown. We celebrate the lives of those who have survived domestic violence, and we provide support and hope to children exposed to violence and loss. At this evening program, candles are lit for the victims who died during the year in Hamilton County.
