Illuminate Irving: Domestic Violence Awareness

Tuesday, Oct. 18
Lanterns glowing with names of loved ones 
were placed on Millennial Fountain in remembrance 
of victims and survivors of domestic violence

In the Japanese culture, the tradition of the Toro Nagashi ceremony floats lit lanterns on the water in remembrance of those who have suffered atrocities.

During the 2022 Illuminate Irving event, more than 200 people turned out at Irving's Millennial Fountain to promote awareness of domestic violence, and honor victims. Lanterns floated in the canal with special messages and names of those affected.
