UMPI’s Student Organization of Social Workers, in collaboration with AMHC Sexual Assault Services, Hope and Justice Project, MicMac Domestic and Sexual Violence Advocacy Center, and Woodstock First Nation Women held a candlelight vigil on Oct. 12. The event included a candlelight vigil and gathering, starting at Gentile Hall and finishing at South Hall. The purpose of the event was to educate people on the impact and issues of domestic violence and sexual violence. One of the many goals of the event was to empower victims of sexual assault. Approximately 50 people attended the vigil and stories of survivors of sexual violence were then read or spoken. Represented agencies shared the resources and services they offer for these circumstances.
