Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2020

On Sunday, October 25th at sunset (approximately 6:30pm), HDVS will commemorate the lives lost to Domestic Violence and Intimate Partner Violence and honor the lives of all survivors with a Lantern Float at Klopp Lake at the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary.

Do you want to honor the life of a loved one lost to Domestic Violence or Intimate Partner Violence, dedicate well wishes to survivors everywhere, or share a message of empowerment? If you are called to do so, please use the form below where you can enter a message, wish, or dedication. On the evening of the Lantern Float, HDVS will read aloud your wish or dedication before placing it in a lantern to be floated out onto the lake.
