Night of Remembrance

Our annual domestic violence candlelight vigil, Night of Remembrance, is Cancelled.


Dear Community,

Due to the current need to discontinue all large group gatherings, we will not hold our in-person candlelight vigil this year. The safety and wellbeing of both our staff and community are of the utmost importance to us. We will, however, release a pre-recorded memorial honoring the victims of domestic violence in San Joaquin County as part of the Silent Witness National Initiative.

Silent Witness Silhouette Display on October 22nd & 23rd

In the spirit of our vigil, we will have our courtyard open on October 22nd & 23rd for the community to view the Silent Witness exhibit and honor the victims of domestic violence. Please note the courtyard will be open for public viewing; however, we ask that social distancing is practiced and masks are worn by all visitors in our courtyard.

Please remember Domestic Violence is completely preventable; these deaths do not have to continue. Continue to support WCYFS to end the countless acts of Domestic Violence in our community. Join us in ending the generational cycle of violence today.
