October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Help WAVI Light the Nights in Rapid City

Please join the WAVI “Light the Nights” event starting October 1 and ending October 31, 2021.
We are asking the residents and businesses of Rapid City
to put a light in their windows or purple bulbs in exterior lights and help
WAVI Light the Nights in October.
The lights will be a community show of support to victims of domestic violence
and a thank you to all who support this effort in the Black Hills.
The purpose of this month-long event is to bring community support, gratitude, awareness, and education
on the topic of Domestic Violence to Rapid City.

For coming to Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® with us!
