BOONE — OASIS, Inc. will host a candlelight vigil and community speakers on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jones House in downtown Boone to honor victims and survivors of intimate partner violence.
This is part of their effort to raise awareness as October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Last year, OASIS served more than 400 survivors in the communities it serves. OASIS stated in a press release that everyone knows someone who has been impacted by intimate partner violence.
Sara Crouch, Director of Community Programs for OASIS, said this event will be a chance for the community to come together with offerings of grief, support and hope for victims and survivors. The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. on the Jones House lawn. There will be speakers to share their stories, an opportunity to light a candle for victims and survivors, and a clothesline up for community members to hang messages from the heart for victims and survivors.
