Massachusetts Silent Witness Exhibit Comes to BMC

Logo_small

The Domestic Violence Advisory Committee is hosting the MA Silent Witness Exhibit on Tuesday, Oct 16th from 10-2 in the Menino lobby. 

About the Exhibit:

The Silent Witness Exhibit is a traveling exhibit that uses art to educate and sensitize people to domestic violence. The Silent Witnesses are free-standing, life-size, red silhouettes each representing a woman, man, or child who was murdered in Massachusetts due to dating or domestic violence. Each witness displays the name and story of a homicide victim. Because these individuals no longer have a voice, the silhouettes are called Silent Witnesses.
