We Say NO MORE - that’s the theme for the Thursday, October 25th Napa Emergency Women’s Services Vigil at Veteran’s Memorial Park in downtown Napa. No More (or “No Más” in Spanish) is a nationwide campaign to bring awareness about Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. “We say No More: Together we can end domestic violence and sexual assault.” (See a photo gallery HERE)
In recognition of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Napa Emergency Women’s Services (NEWS) will sponsor the event. The vigil is the culmination of the month long observance which is celebrated around the country by advocates, victim service providers, law enforcement, the judiciary, prosecutors and survivors in an effort to raise public awareness about domestic violence.
This year's vigil will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. concluding with a candlelight march. Information displays about services provided by NEWS will be available including information about the Kids Exposed to Domestic Violence (KEDS) program with activities for children. Another fun activity for all ages available is fingernail painting with “Purple With A Purpose” sponsored by O·P·I Nail Lacquer. The Phat Salads & Wraps food truck will also be participating at the event with a Dine & Donate.
