The Silent Witness Initiative is a traveling memorial of life-sized, red silhouettes honoring the lives of women, men, and children who have lost their lives due to domestic violence. It happens every year during the month of October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Arkansas consistently ranks in the top-percentile of domestic violence related deaths per capita in the United States. Silhouettes are distributed around Northwest Arkansas at schools, universities, local businesses, and other areas.
