The YWCA's Annual Week Without Violence is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls. The goal of YWCA Stand Against Domestic Violence Luminary Night is to "light the night" in Darien, and surrounding communities so that victims and survivors can see they are not alone and have community, friends, and neighbors standing with them. Please light your luminary kit on October 24th at sunset.
Each luminary kit you receive will contain 10 luminaries. Funds from the sale of luminary kit's will be used to support The Darien Domestic Abuse Council's efforts to send children to Camp Hope, a summer camp for children from 5 and 17 who have been abused, and to support YWCA Darien/Norwalk's advocacy and mission-driven programming.
Additonally, we are partnering with the Darien Domestic Abuse Council on a Domestic Violence Awarenss email campaign. You will receive 7-days of informational emails to help you recognize the sign of domesitc violence and ways to help victims.
