November E-Newsletter 2021

A Safe Place’s 8th annual Walk a Mile for A Safe Place on October 2nd, 2021 fell on a beautiful Nantucket day. We would like to thank all those that participated and supported the walk and our agency. Thanks to all of the donors and sponsors who make it possible to offer all of our services free of charge to survivors who experience domestic or sexual violence.

A Safe Place’s Shoe Project at the Pacific National Bank during Domestic Violence Awareness Month was very powerful to those that stopped by to read about each victim murdered by a domestic partner in Massachusetts during the last 12 months. Thank you to the Pacific National Bank for hosting this awareness display at the top of Main Street!

During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, A Safe Place’s emotionally moving Silent Witness Project was on display at businesses and organizations around the island. Each silhouette represented the life of someone who was a victim of domestic violence homicide and/or provided information about the lasting and traumatic effects of domestic violence. Thank you to the following silhouette hosts: Wicked Island Bakery, Espresso To Go, Nantucket Atheneum, Offshore Animal Hospital, Safe Harbor for Animals, Dan’s Pharmacy, Nantucket Police Department, SaltBox Tavern & Table, Old South Market, El Salvadorian Market, Trading Post, and Nantucket High School.
