Domestic violence awareness event set

Several community agencies will host Lawrence Together Strong, formerly known as Take Back the Night, beginning at 6 p.m. today at South Park. The annual event, which will include speakers, food vendors, a candlelight vigil, and “speak-out” circles, is designed to raise awareness about sexual and domestic violence. Sarah Jane Russell, executive director of GaDuGi SafeCenter, is the featured speaker this year. The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity, GaDuGi SafeCenter and the Willow Domestic Violence Center.
