Baldwin 64768 Celebration of Peace
Introducing the 2022 Awareness Ornament
The Celebration of Peace is an annual event hosted by Safe Berks, the agency serving survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Berks County, PA. At this yearly event, the community gathers to celebrate Safe Berks’ mission of providing a safe haven and support for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. Locally founded in 1976 as Berks Women in Crisis, Safe Berks is one of many organizations across the country that provide free and confidential services to survivors 24 hours every day of the year. Tragically, domestic violence is more common and more dangerous than many people realize. In the United States, one in four women and one in seven men experience domestic violence in their lifetime, and more than 10 million people are abused each year, according to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, help is available. Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE.
