The Safe Berks Silent Witness March & Dedication is held each year in October, as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. According to our records, 80 beloved people have been killed by domestic violence in Berks County since 1999. At this solemn event, we mourn for those lost to domestic violence and their families, friends, neighbors and co-workers. We honor and remember each unique life, and we offer support to their families and friends.
