All across the nation, October has been recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Organizations, advocates, survivors and communities have come together to increase awareness, remember those who have died at the hands of domestic violence, celebrate those who survived and bring hope to those still suffering in silence.
Safe Nest has been providing shelter and assistance to victims of domestic violence for over 30 years in Las Vegas, NV. Serving over 50,000 persons annually, Safe Nest programs include shelter, counseling, advocacy and prevention education. On Friday, October 26, 2012, Safe Nest and several West Side churches will come together to celebrate survivors of domestic violence at the 3rd Annual “Hold Up The Light: Celebrating The Lives of Women”. This event will take place at Ebenezer Church Of God In Christ located at 1072 Barlett Ave at 7pm. The event will bring together gospel choirs in a celebration of hope and survivorship.
