Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV), Georgia’s first, largest and most experienced nonprofit working to end domestic violence, will host its 5th annual Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. The event will take place at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough’s office from 6 – 7:30 p.m. on October 27, 2016.
The event recognizes those who have lost their lives to intimate partner domestic violence in the past year, and gives family and friends a chance to grieve together while raising awareness. PADV is inviting the community to this year’s event to light candles and listen to powerful testimonies from survivors. Last year’s Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil recognized 91 victims with more than 150 people in attendance.
