WEST VALLEY CITY — The city will mark Domestic Violence Awareness Month with 44 "silent witnesses" in the City Hall lobby.

The “silent witnesses,” who will be in the building Oct. 1–5, mourn those who have died because of domestic violence while celebrating those who have survived and honoring those who work to end domestic violence.

West Valley City Victim Services will hold a candlelight march and program on Oct. 2 at 5:30 p.m. The march begins at the outdoor plaza of Valley Fair Mall and continues to City Hall, where a Domestic Violence Awareness Program begins at 6 p.m. followed by light refreshments.
