March & Vigil Against Domestic Violence (In Honor of Ka'Sandra Wade)
Please join us in an annual march and vigil against domestic violence. Co-Sponsors ANEW Rising Women's Collective and New Voices Pittsburgh.
When Ka'Sandra Wade was murdered by her ex one year ago, there was more attention paid by the media than for most victims of domestic violence. Her story stayed in the news because it exposed problems within police policies on responding to 911 calls for "unknown trouble." Her family and advocates for women worked tirelessly to change those policies.
*** But since Ka'Sandra's death one year ago, 100 more women in Pennsylvania have died from domestic violence! ***
We must all come together to stop the death of the next Ka'Sandra.
We will be marching to join up with the "One Billion BEEN Rising for Justice Pittsburgh" event in Market Square.
Please save the date of Friday, February 14, 2014 for a March & Vigil Against Domestic Violence.
And, Please invite all your friends to this event!
Help us to bring attention to this issue and to bring an end to the violence!
