Silent Witnesses

Thursday, October 5, 2017 to Tuesday, October 31, 2017
2nd Floor North Wall

Community display by DVIP (Domestic Violence Intervention Program) and the Johnson County Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

The Silent Witness Project began 27 years ago as a national initiative to promote education and end domestic violence. This project is now displayed in all 50 states and 23 countries worldwide. In a study released in July 2017 by the CDC more than half of female homicide victims were killed in connection with intimate partner violence. We lose hundreds of lives every year to domestic violence. These red silhouettes hold space for those we have lost in Iowa due to domestic violence. Each has a badge which states the name, date, and story of some of the individuals we have lost due to Domestic Violence.
