16th Annual Silent March
The 16th Annual March Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault brought the community together to break the silence and end the Violence. On Tuesday, October 1, the march started at 5:30 p.m. at the 109th Police Precinct, 37-05 Union Street, Flushing, NY and conclude at 6:30 p.m. at the Flushing Library, 41-17 Main Street, Flushing, NY.
KAFSC holds this annual march in memory of those lost, in honor of those who have survived, and to empower those currently suffering in silence. For the past 16 years, KAFSC has brought the community together to raise awareness concerning the reality of domestic violence and sexual assault and unite our voices as one against the silence that surrounds these issues. Many of our local and state-elected officials as well as other community members who have and continue to support us in our efforts joined us as we marched towards a violence-free future.
“In the fight against domestic violence, the first step is to raise awareness amongst local groups and citizens. KAFSC has demonstrated its commitment to making a difference by coordinating and hosting the Annual March Against Domestic Violence for the past fifteen years. I am honored to be able to walk with the organization this year and in years past, and hope that our collective effort will lead to an increased awareness for all.” – NYC Council Member Peter Koo.
