The Northwest Ohio Silent Witness Project

 

Bethany House presents the annual Unveiling Ceremony for the Northwest Ohio Silent Witness Project on October 1, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Parkway Place, 2500 Parkway Plaza in Maumee. The Silent Witness Project is a national initiative, founded in 1990 in Minnesota, in response to an epidemic of domestic violence homicides. There are local Silent Witness Project chapters in all 50 states.

 

The 2019 Silent Witness Project collection contains 55 free-standing, life-sized wooden silhouettes, each one bearing the name and story of a girl or woman whose life ended violently at the hands of a husband, boyfriend, dating partner or stalker. All Silent Witnesses in the collection were from northwest Ohio and all were murdered within the past decade.

 

During the unveiling, the silhouettes will be revealed one by one in a solemn ceremony. Each Silent Witness will be represented by an individual reader, who will recount the story of the girl or woman represented by that figure.

 

This event is free and open to the public; however, due to the intense nature of the program, organizers ask that those in attendance do not bring young children.

 

For more information about this event, please visit BethanyHouseToledo.org/events, contact Project Coordinator Mary Krueger at SilentWitnessProject@BethanyHousetoledo.org, or call 419-727-4948.

 

Bethany House is sponsored by the Sylvania Franciscans, a member of Sylvania Franciscan Ministries and Northwest Ohio Community Shares.
