In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Womanspace is launching their  2018 Communities of Light Peace Begins At Home campaign on Oct. 23 at 5:30 p.m. at D&R Greenway Land Trust in Princeton.

This campaign, now in its 17th year, is a symbol of hope and solidarity for those affected by domestic and sexual violence in our community.

Following the Oct. 23 launch event, Womanspace encourages businesses, neighborhoods and community organizations to purchase luminary kits, raise awareness of Womanspace’s services, and spread the message that “peace begins at home.”

Luminary kits are available directly from Womanspace and a variety of county retailers for $10. Money earned from the sale of luminary kits goes directly to providing crucial support services for those affected by domestic and sexual violence.

Womanspace is honored to have Pam Mount, owner of Terhune Orchards, as this year’s Honorary Chair. Terhune Orchards has sold luminary kits for many years and maintains an active relationship with Womanspace.

All are welcome at the Oct. 23 launch event, but space is limited. Register by calling (609) 394-0136 or emailing eat@womanspace.org. Luminary kits will be available for purchase at the event.
