The Uncounted Women

Witnesses are red because it is the color of life's blood, the one way in which we are all united ... no matter our race, creed or culture. The shields are placed over our heart, our life's rhythm.

This exhibit is dedicated to using a visual message to further the cause of reducing violence against women and children.  The central theme is the promotion of healing and peace in committed relationships by remembering and honoring the women and children who were murdered in acts of domestic violence, by raising awareness in our communities of the extent of domestic violence, by helping connect people with local resources for ending violence in their lives, and by encouraging community action to end violence in our society.
