Silent Witnesses

In 1990, a group of women in Minnesota who were upset with the growing number of women being murdered by their partners started what is now called The Silent Witnesses. These being free-standing, life-size red wooden figures with each one bearing the name of a woman whose life ended violently at the hands of a husband, ex-husband, partner, or acquaintance. During the month of October, (Domestic Violence Awareness Month) we will be showing our own Silent Witnesses.  These honor women who were born and raised in our service area or who have lost their lives in one of the counties that we serve. These witnesses will be put up throughout area communities in churches and hospitals, with victim’s names to show how tragic domestic violence relationships can be.
