The Peace at Home Family Shelter has organized a 1.2 mile walk to stand up and say “no” to domestic violence.
The walk will be on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 11 a.m to 4 p.m.
Those interested in the walk will meet at The Jones Center for a small ceremony in remembrance of domestic violence victims. Speakers include Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse, Peace at Home Staff Attorney Kelly Freeze and Benton County Victim Witness Coordinator Robin Santos.
The walk will go down Emma Ave, to Berry Street and then on Huntsville Ave. Signs and banners will be held at the walk showing that the community says “no” to domestic violence.
There will also be a display of life-size silhouettes of domestic violence victims and their names. After the walk will be a family-friendly “fiesta.”
Participants may pick up a t-shirt for a donation of $10 or more.
The Peace at Home Shelter is still in need of vendors for the event. If interested in being a vendor, you may call 479-442-9811.
