You are invited to VSC's annual vigil to remember those who lost their lives to violence and to honor law enforcement officers lost in the course of their duty to serve. This vigil, set during National Crime Victims' Rights Week, will be a time to remember, a time to stand with survivors of violence, and a time to provide support to people experiencing grief.

Thank you for supporting survivors. Thank you for making our community a better place. Thank you for all you do.
