Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV), Georgia’s first, largest and most experienced nonprofit working to end domestic violence, will host its 6th annual Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. The event will take place at the Cator Woolford Gardens at The Frazer Center on October 26, 2017 from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
The event recognizes those who have lost their lives to intimate partner 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 more than 60 victims with over 100 supporters in attendance.
PADV is currently the largest nonprofit domestic violence agency in Georgia, serving metro Atlanta since 1977. Their mission is to end the crime of intimate partner violence and empower its survivors. PADV helps to transform the lives of approximately 20,000 women and children every year through emergency intervention, education, violence prevention and long‐term advocacy.
