Last year, the number of people who lost their lives to domestic violence in Wisconsin fell - from 55 to 43. Yet those involved in fighting the problem vow to remain vigilant.
People gathered at Milwaukee City Hall Monday to show solidarity with people still suffering. Each marcher wore an orange t-shirt reading “say no to violence against women.”
They staged a walk for peace downtown and then gathered inside Milwaukee City Hall to remember last year’s victims of domestic violence. While men’s names are on the list, much of Monday’s gathering focused on women.
