Stop the Hurt

Please check out this short video about the RI Silent Witnesses and the University of Rhode Island’s Peer Advocacy Center working together to remember victims of domestic violence.  The statewide march on October 18th each year in Providence brings together all 8 Silent Witness projects around Rhode Island – 104 Silent Witness figures that tell the stories of the women, men + children that have been murdered in Rhode Island over the past 25 years.  A powerful night of remembrance.

    This is an impressisve piece, the support from peers has proven to be successful in helping survivors get help and stay safe. Often times it’s the best psychology a woman needs to find the strength to stay away from the violator and rebuild her life.
