Women Aware offers our deepest condolences to the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada last night and their families.
On the first day of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we are tragically reminded of the intersection of mass shootings and domestic violence. Last year alone, 1/3 of mass shooting deaths in the United States were related in some way to domestic violence. For more on the topic, visit our 2016 post here.
Please join our Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday October 11th from 6:30-7:30 pm at Monument Square Park in New Brunswick to honor all victims of violence and especially victims of domestic violence. The event is free and open to the public.
