Montclair, NJ– Start Out Fresh Intervention Advocates (S.O.F.I.A.) will hold its annual Domestic Violence Awareness Vigil on Monday, October 28th, 2019 at 6:30 PM in Montclair’s Crane Park. Rain or Shine. The annual vigil occurs during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and is focused on honoring loved ones whose lives have been lost to domestic violence, supporting survivors and both adult and child victims who currently suffer in abuse, and promoting unity and awareness throughout the community. 


Please join us in lighting candles to let those affected by domestic violence know they are not alone and that we support their journey to healing. We also light candles to raise awareness and to promote advocacy to work to eradicate domestic violence. Participants can bring their own candles or flashlights, but S.O.F.I.A. will also provide flameless candles to attendees.


Crane Park in Montclair, NJ is located just north of Bloomfield Avenue, at the intersection of Glenridge Avenue and Lackawanna Plaza. We will gather for the vigil at 6:30 PM and adjourn at approximately 7:30 PM.
