DV Rally, Awareness Walk and Candlelight Vigil
Join us in a community event to jumpstart Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Rally will begin at the Osceola County Courthouse in Kissimmee with messages from survivors and community advocates to end violence against women and children. The Awareness Walk takes place through the streets of Downtown Kissimmee and will end with a candlelight vigil at the Kissimmee Police Department as we honor those who have lost their lives due to domestic violence and shine a light of hope for current survivors in our community. Wear purple, bring signs and pledge your support to stop the violence.
