Spreading Our Wings Annual Candlelight Vigil
Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we take this time to raise awareness of domestic violence, remember those who have been lost and elevate our voices in a call to action bringing hope to survivors. In 2013, PADV hosted our Annual Candlelight Vigil in collaboration with the International Women’s House, Judicial Correction Services, Secur’us House, Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Fulton County Solicitor General’s Office of Victim Assistance. Hors d’oeuvres were generously provided by local renowned chef Elliott Farmer. Guest speakers included those affected by domestic violence and a spoken word piece performed by Imani Evans (CEO and Founder of Women Healing Women, Inc.) To view pictures, click here.
