Domestic violence peace vigil Friday
Family Services, in collaboration with Lexington Police Department and Thomasville Police Department, invite the community to acknowledge the lives of those lost in Davidson County due to domestic violence.
A peace vigil will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, at the Lexington Police Department at 106 N. Main St.
Survivor stories and inspirational music will be shared and community leaders and members will stand together in a call to action to end domestic violence.
“Domestic violence shows no prejudice – it affects all cultures, races, religions,” said Lt. Kimberly Sebastian of the Thomasville Police Department. “It knows no boundaries. It is an evil that for far too long has been kept behind closed doors.
“It’s time to open those doors and let in the light of awareness, of peace, and of hope.
“Please come out and show your support. Help us honor those who have lost their lives to domestic violence,” she added.
