Candlelight Vigil

The issue of domestic violence in our community is the focus of tonight’s candlelight vigil to honor those impacted by domestic violence hosted by Yankton Sexual Assault/Community Response Team.

River City Domestic Violence Center Executive Director Desiree Johnson says the keynote speaker for the vigil is Audrey Mabrey who herself suffered horrific injuries when her estranged husband attempted to murder her.

Johnson says the issue of domestic violence affects families not just in our area but throughout the nation.

The candlelight vigil to honor those impacted by domestic violence hosted by Yankton Sexual Assault/Community Response Team is set for 7 PM today at the Yankton Middle School.
