An Empty Place at the Table

October 31, 2014 at 5:00 pm

A remembrance of the lives lost to domestic violence.

Domestic Violence is the leading cause of injury to women. We hear about incidents through the media, yet many times we forget about the spaces left empty at dinner tables across the state. The emptiness does not occur just on Sundays or holidays, it is there 365 days a year.

This tribute of remembrance honors those who have lost their lives to domestic violence during the past year in Massachusetts. The names of every victim are inscribed onto each place setting, a powerful display of the family memories that will be missed.
