County Commemorates Day of Remembrance on Thursday, Nov. 3

You’re invited to join San Mateo County Supervisors Don Horsley and Rose Jacobs Gibson and the County’s Domestic Violence Council in commemorating a Day of Remembrance, a time to acknowledge the losses the county has suffered as a result of domestic violence and offer information and hope to those who still fear for their safety.

Thursday, November 3, 2011
11:30 a.m.—1:00 p.m.
Redwood City Library Community Room
1044 Middlefield Road, Redwood City
Resource tables open from 11:30 a.m.—1:30 p.m.
Ceremony begins at 12:00 noon

This ceremony commemorates the memory of those who died because of domestic violence, celebrates those who have survived, and connects those who work to end violence in San Mateo County.

The Day of Remembrance begins at 11:30 a.m. with an opportunity for the community to view and interact with the Silhouette Project and domestic violence service providers staffing resource tables. At noon leaders from the faith community will offer messages of hope and condolence, survivors of violence will share personal testimony, and community leaders and service providers will read the names of those who have died, accompanied by the ringing of bells. Counseling and referral services will be available on site.

Please join our efforts to bring awareness to this epidemic in our county and to eliminate family violence in our communities.
