First Step Holds Candlelight Vigil To Raise Awareness On Domestic Violence

Texomans gathered Wednesday night for the annual First Step Candlelight Vigil bringing awareness of domestic violence.

First Step's mission for the vigil is to gather a show of community support to convey a powerful message, there is no place for domestic violence in the homes, neighborhoods, workplaces or schools.

First Step says across the country, families and friends of victims have adopted the purple ribbon to remember and honor their loved ones who have lost their lives at the hands of a person they once loved and trusted.

Shelters and local battered women's programs use the purple ribbon to raise awareness about the crime of domestic violence in their communities.
