Candlelight Vigil

  • Rotary Plaza 301 Tribune Street Rome, GA, 30161 United States (map)

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM)! 
Our Candlelight Vigil is held in honor, recognition and remembrance of those who have lost their lives in the struggle against domestic violence. But our gentle flames are also a symbol of the fiery strength inside each survivor. So, on Oct. 20, we will burn wax in the name of remembrance and empowerment. 
Our vigil will include an honored guest who will speak of her struggle and survival in the face of DV, live acoustic songs by Erin Moniz, candle-lighting and lantern release over the Coosa River in downtown Rome.
