Del Rio, TX – During the eighth annual ceremony, 136 small lights were illuminated representing each victim who died from an act of domestic violence in Texas throughout the past year.
BCFS Health and Human Services hosted the vigil, which included speeches about prevention and song and dance numbers performed by the city’s youth. Purple lights and ribbons were used to signal the official color of the National Domestic Violence Awareness Project.
