Light the night to stand against domestic violence. Recognize and support the silent victims, survivors and lost lives in our community.

Luminary Night

The YWCA Luminary Night kits will be available for sale beginning on Friday, September 17th.  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 suffered physical abuse, and to support YWCA Darien/Norwalk's advocacy and mission-driven programming. Each luminary kit contains 10 luminaries, information, and resources about domestic violence support and prevention, as well as assembly instructions.

YWCA Week Without Violence 2021

The third week in October is YWCA USA's Annual National Week Without Violence.  The week is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls. Each local chapter of the YWCA hosts its own programming and events in support of the movement.

On Sunday October 24th we will begin the week with the lighting of Stand Against Domestic Violence luminaries at 6:00 PM. The lighted luminaries, placed along front yards, sidewalks or driveways, create a ribbon of light to visually recognize and support the silent victims, survivors and lost lives in our community, and raise public awareness around domestic violence.

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.

 

Light the night so that victims and survivors can see they are not alone and have a community, friends and neighbors standing with them.

Please consider being a block captain or purchasing kits to share with neighbors.

Luminary kits will be available for purchase beginning September 17th.  Please reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to place a bulk order for your business or neighborhood.
