Standing Silent Witness
Daley Plaza – FRIDAY, April 24 from Noon-1pm

Join PAVE as we support Rape Victim Advocate’s Standing Silent Witness. On Friday, April 24th from 12 noon to 1 pm at Daley Plaza, participants will stand silently and wear t-shirts displaying the stories of sexual assault survivors in order to "break the silence" about sexual violence. At this powerful, moving demonstration, community members, advocates, volunteers and survivors bear witness to stories that are too often invisible and unacknowledged.  Join us at RVA’s Central Office at 11 am to prepare for the event or meet us directly at Daley Plaza.
