Safe Futures to hold second vigil to remember domestic violence victims
New London — Safe Futures will hold a candlelight vigil at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, to remember those who lost their lives to domestic violence.
The vigil will take place outside the agency's office at 16 Jay St. and is part of the agency's efforts to bring attention to the issue of domestic violence during the month of October.
The agency provided services to more than 7,000 clients during the past fiscal year, running an emergency shelter and helping victims navigate the legal system, access counselors and obtain job training.
Vigil participants are invited afterward to a reception with light refreshments that will be held within Safe Future's career center offices.
