The University of Toledo community is honoring and remembering those affected by domestic violence with events in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Life-sized silhouettes created as solemn displays to commemorate victims, known as the Silent Witness Project, will be on display from Tuesday, Oct. 8, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the steps outside the Student Union. The silhouette displays serve as memorials to girls and women whose lives were ended abruptly and violently at the hands of a husband, ex-husband, partner or stalker.

A survivor vigil will conclude the day’s events at 6 p.m. to honor survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to domestic violence.

The Domestic Violence Awareness Month events are coordinated by the UT Sexual Assault Education and Prevention Program.
