Spreading Our Wings Candlelight Vigil
Sadly, hundreds of people pass away every year due to intimate partner violence. PADV's Annual Candlelight Vigil is held each October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, to remember those lost in Georgia over the last year as a result of this senseless crime. We light a candle in their memory and listen to inspiring testimonies from survivors who thankfully overcame their abuse with the help of local domestic violence organizations.
PADV is honored to host the 5th Annual Spreading Our Wings Candlelight Vigil in collaboration with the Atlanta Volunteers Lawyers Foundation's Domestic Violence Program, International Women's House, Judicial Correction Services, Securus House and the Office of the Fulton County Solicitor General.
