October 1st: Vigil for Victims and Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence
Our first event this month was powerful and unique. For our Vigil for Victims and Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence, we had community speeches, music by Kris Ray, and speeches from a survivor speaker along with Mayor Vinis.
Everyone in attendance elected to take part in our ribbon ceremony to demonstrate survivor strength. Each color of ribbon denoted a different type of abuse suffered in our community. These ribbons were then tied to a Circle of Strength wreath, which now hangs proudly at City Hall.
October 14th: Wonder Run
October 19th: Reunion and Community Celebration
October 24th: Womenspace Open House
On October 24th, we opened out office doors to the public! The Womenspace Open House was filled with education, laughter, community, and waffles! Thanks again to everyone who came to meet us and to Off the Waffle for catering the event.
