PORTLAND WOMEN’S CRISIS LINE TO HONOR OREGON VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Community Members Are Asked to Join Virtual Vigil

Portland, OR, October, 14-18, 2013: Each year, Portland Women’s Crisis Line (PWCL) staff members keep track of the domestic violence-related homicides in the state of Oregon. Beginning in 2009 in response to the string of murder-suicides that took the lives of 10 victims that November, PWCL has held annual vigils to remember the names of these victims. What we know is that these alarming trends continue to rise. As such, the Portland Women’s Crisis Line has been prompted to hold a fifth vigil for victims of domestic violence murder. This year, however, the vigil will last a whole week, and mainly exist virtually for wider visibility.
