Domestic violence toll highlighted by lighting ceremony

The Violence Intervention Project remembers those killed across Wisconsin as a result of domestic violence on Tuesday, October 29th. The ceremony begins with a social hour at 5:30 PM at Grace Lutheran Church in Kewaunee. Advocate Micayla says hundreds attend and the night's activities aren't possible without the participation of residents from the area.


A local choir and a speaker are also involved. 33 people killed from across the state last year; men, women, and an unborn child are set to be remembered. Micayla says that the trend is heading in the right direction. There will also be candles lit for the 198 people helped by VIP in 2018.
