Northwest Ohio Silent Witness Project

Join us on October 2, 2017 for the 17th Annual Unveiling Ceremony of the Northwest Ohio Silent Witness Project.

The event will take place at the Franciscan Center at Lourdes University starting at 7pm.

Sixty life-size figures will be unveiled, representing girls and women from our community who were murdered in the past decade by husbands, boyfriends or stalkers.

The project is endorsed by more than 40 Northwest Ohio service agencies, community organizations, higher education institutions and criminal justice professionals. Faith leaders from multiple and diverse religious traditions will affirm their support for survivors of domestic violence and for the loved ones of victims who did not survive.

Many men and women die each year in acts of domestic violence in the United States. Each one has a story. Join our efforts to end this tragedy.

Visit our Facebook event page to share this event with your network because we need to remember their stories.

We need to remember their names.

About the Silent Witness Project

In 1990, the Silent Witness Initiative began promoting and education to support an end to domestic violence through community-based exhibits. It started with a small group of volunteers in one state and grew into an international presence with projects in all 50 states and 23 countries.

Silent Witness International is the leading voice that honors the lives of domestic violence homicide victims through family support, community connections, and advocacy for change.
