The event is free and the public is cordially invited to attend. During the vigil, victims and survivors of domestic violence will be honored and remembered as a way to reaffirm community commitment to ending abuse and violence.
Reflections and candle lighting will take place at the Center for Hope and Safety Pathway to Self-Sufficiency, found adjacent to parking lot 4. The Center for Hope and Safety’s Pathway to Self-Sufficiency is a garden and brick walkway created in partnership with the County of Bergen, Department of Parks.
