Starr Lamare Vigil: New Location @ GLIDE tonight at 615pm

from yesterday’s vigil announcement:

GLIDE is partnering with the San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium (DVC) to host a candlelight vigil in honor of Starr Lamare, the 25-year-old mother of three who family members say was set on fire by her boyfriend, Dexter Oliver, this past Sunday in the city’s Bayview neighborhood. This senseless attack reminds San Franciscans that much remains to be done to protect against and remedy incidents of violence against women in our communities and in our city.

“We must stand together to create safety in our homes, in our relationships, in our families.  There’s an African Proverb: ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ Well, it’s going to take a village to end domestic violence in our communities.  So please join us in healing as a community.” – Zwazzi Sowö, Glide’s Women’s Center’s Program Manager

You are invited to stand with GLIDE and the DVC in support of Ms. Lamare at a candlelight vigil for an evening of healing and reflection. We will gather as a community beginning at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, January 9th at GLIDE, 330 Ellis Street at Taylor, where Ms. Lamare is currently recovering from her severe injuries.

Domestic violence advocates urge anyone facing violence in their relationships to contact the DVC, whose member organizations provide a range of supportive services for domestic violence survivors.  Nearly one-third of women in the United States report being physically or sexually abused by an intimate partner at some point in their lives.

The San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium founded in 1982, is a network of seventeen domestic violence service agencies that come together with the goal of providing high quality, coordinated and comprehensive services to San Francisco’s victims of domestic abuse.
