SILENT WITNESS PROJECT

"REMEMBER MY NAME"

Each year in order to ensure that all victims of domestic violence are honored, DART hosts a vigil in each of the parishes we serve during the month of October.

These vigils serve as a demonstration to the communities the wide spread problem of domestic violence in our state and the need to hold perpetrators accountable for their violence before homicides occurs. [See Video]

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence [NCADV], in conjunction with Ms. Magazine started this project in 1994 to create a registry of the names of woman who lost their lives due to domestic violence.
