Silent Witness Initiative

The Department of Political Science is sponsoring Silent Witness Initiative in October on the First Floor Gallery, University Libraries.

In 1990, the Silent Witness Initiative began promoting and education to support an end to domestic violence through community based exhibits. It started with a small group of volunteers in one state and grew into an international presence, with projects in all 50 states and 23 countries. Silent Witness provides hope, help and healing for the victims and violators of domestic violence. Our goal is to eliminate domestic violence homicides by 2020.

Thousands of men and women die each year in acts of domestic violence in the United States. Each one has a story. Join our efforts to end this tragedy.
