October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Mujeres De Paz Vigil. ... “We sing for those who were silenced.”.

Over 300 men and women joined us on October 2, 2014 for the Annual Mujeres de Paz Candlelight Vigil

Every year we walk and hold a Vigil to honor survivors and victims, their families and friends. Our journey began at the mural of the La Virgen De Guadalupe on the corner of Mednik and Cesar Chavez Avenue. The procession traveled to Collegian and Cesar Chavez, and ended at the East Los Angeles College Performing Arts Center Courtyard where ceremonies included inspiring stories, dance, and song.  It was a beautiful evening with Danza Azteca Xochipili, Vice President Oscar Valeriano, Director of Athletics Al Cone, Detective Moses Castillo, ELAWC Counselor Debbie Suaste-Servin and Hector Perez-Pacheco and heartfelt testomonials from women and men impacted by domestic violence. The evening ended with a friendship danza and blessings.

With gratitude to our friends and sponsors East Los Angeles College, Violence Intervention Team, Associated Student Union, the ELAC Feminist Club, a special thanks to Andrea Owens from ELAC, Starbucks and Los Reyes Bakery, California Highway Patrol, the Boyle Heights Advisory Council, Hector Perez Pacheco, Xochipili , ELAC students, and ELAWC staff.
