On October 6, 2017 we launched the 5th Annual Silent Witness Project at the Bentonville Square along with our partners. The event included public remarks from Bentonville Mayor Bob McCaslin and a Proclamation against Domestic Violence by Nathan Smith, Benton County Prosecuting Attorney.

Thanks to the following partners who chose to take a stand against domestic violence by hosting one of the red, life-sized silhouettes representing the 31 Arkansans who died as a result of domestic abuse in 2016 at their businesses and agencies during the month of October:
