A candlelight vigil remembering victims who have lost their lives to domestic violence and in support of survivors will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 16 on the lawn of Ka’ahumanu Church on High Street in Wailuku.
The vigil is being held in observance of October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Candles will be provided. Prior to the vigil, sign-waving in front of the County Building will take place at 5 p.m.
“It’s important to honor the lives of those killed by an abuser and bring attention to the need to support victims, survivors and their families,” said vigil organizers Mahina Martin and Michele Navarro Ishiki. “As a community, in our families, our workplaces, our neighborhoods – zero tolerance for domestic violence can exist.”
In remembrance, the names of those who lost their lives to domestic violence on Maui and throughout Hawai’i will be read aloud at the vigil.
