October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
You Are Invited to the 18th Annual Safe Berks Silent Witness March & Dedication
Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at the RACC Schmidt Training & Technology Center
The Safe Berks Silent Witness Project is a visual monument to Berks County women, men, and children who were victims of domestic violence homicide. As we march from Safe Berks to Reading Area Community College, we will carry red, life-size silhouettes that symbolize the victims. Each silhouette wears a shield that describes the tragedy of their untimely death.
