Domestic Violence Victims to be Honored at Light Up The Night

The UCF community will honor the lives of domestic violence victims during the Light Up The Night event on Monday, Oct. 2, in the Pegasus Ballroom of the Student Union. The event will start at 6 p.m.

In its 10th year, the event is hosted by UCF Victim Services every October in conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month to encourage people to discuss the dangers of relationship violence and to share resources for support.

This year’s event will feature personal stories from survivors and lessons learned from professionals in the field.

During the program, “An Empty Place at the Table” ceremony will honor people with ties to UCF who have lost their lives due to intimate partner violence. In addition, campus and community organizations will have tables at the event to share resources and answer questions.
