The HOPE Center held their annual Victory over Violence Luminary Celebration on Bridge Square (PDF flyer) on Thursday night.
People were invited to “… walk through the luminaries, experience the Clothesline Project, pay tribute to survivors, and learn more about HOPE Center and the issues of domestic/sexual violence.”
It’s quite a powerful thing to experience. And like last year, I noticed at least one person quietly sitting by themselves, weeping.
Unlike last year’s blog post of the event, I did take photos of the ‘Clothesline’ — T-shirts created by rape victims, hanging on a line on Bridge Square.
The April 9 Northfield News featured an article about the departure of long-time Executive Director Leah Lutz. Her replacement will be named this week.
