October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the City of Irving will honor victims, survivors and their families during this year’s Illuminate Irving: a Night of Remembrance and Hope gathering.
The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 15 along Mandalay Canal, 200 E. Las Colinas Blvd.
Domestic violence is a crime that affects all demographics regardless of socioeconomic level, education, race, national origin, age, gender or sexual orientation.
Representatives from Irving’s Family Advocacy Center, along with other organizations, will be on hand to provide helpful information to those in need.
Anyone who wishes to float a lantern on the canal in honor of a victim or survivor of domestic violence is invited to participate.
