Safe Berks will honor and remember the Berks County victims of domestic violence homicide on Monday October 18 at our 20th Annual Silent Witness March & Dedication. We hold this event each October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

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.

This event is free and open to the public. Masks are required. To prevent the risk of COVID-19, Safe Berks will follow all CDC guidelines. If any changes to this event are made, we will publish those changes on our website,, and on our social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

We will gather at Safe Berks, 255 Chestnut St., Reading at 11 A.M. 11:20 am – 11:50 am, we will march from Safe Berks to Reading Area Community College’s Schmidt Training & Technology Center. The dedication ceremony will be 12:00 pm – 12:40 pm, followed by lunch 12:45 pm – 2 pm.
