Silent Witness Project

WARNING:  This post about domestic violence could be a trigger for some.

Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, my local city hall has made a Silent Witness Project installation.

 

 

 

There are 7 red silhouettes stationed in the lobby of Renton City Hall.  Six are women and one is a man.  From the city Facebook page:   “October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Through the “Silent Witness Project” the City of Renton is featuring silhouettes, in the City Hall lobby, of those who lost their lives at the hand of domestic violence, many who were Renton residents. Throughout the rest of the month, we will be featuring the silhouettes”

“Get HELP” and keep talking until someone listens!”

    It is sad that we need exhibits like this to make people more aware of the problem with domestic violence.
