Safe Berks Silent Witness Project
The Safe Berks Silent Witness Project is a visual monument to the Berks County lives lost to domestic violence. Each red silhouette wears a shield that describes their tragic death. The Silent Witness Project always takes place in October, as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
According to our records, 69 Berks residents have been killed by domestic violence since 1999. “While these 69 victims of domestic violence can no longer speak to us, we still hear their voices,” said Lisa Tumbleson, Director of Education and Outreach at Safe Berks. “We hear their warnings, we amplify their pleas for justice, and we echo their urgent calls to action – to end this violence.”
For more information about the Silent Witness Project, contact Tumbleson at LisaT@SafeBerks.org.
