Womanspace to Launch “Communities of Light” Event

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Womanspace will launch our 2018 Communities of Light™ Peace Begins At Home campaign on October 23 at 5:30pm at D&R Greenway Land Trust in Princeton, NJ. This campaign, now in its seventeenth year, is a powerful symbol of hope and solidarity for those affected by domestic and sexual violence in our community.           

Following our launch event on October 23, we encourage businesses, neighborhoods, and community organizations to purchase luminary kits, raise awareness of Womanspace’s services, and spread the message that “Peace Begins at Home.” Luminary kits are available directly from Womanspace and a variety of county retailers for a small price of $10. Money earned from the sale of luminary kits goes directly to providing crucial support services for those affected by domestic and sexual violence.

Womanspace is honored to have Pam Mount, owner of Terhune Orchards, as this year’s Honorary Chair. Pam is an avid conservationalist and Terhune is visited by over half a million people each year. Terhune Orchards has sold our luminary kits for many years and maintains an active relationship with Womanspace.

Please join Womanspace for the Communities of Light launch on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at the D&R Greenway Land Trust in Princeton, New Jersey at 5:30 PM. All are welcome, but space is limited. Be sure to register by calling 609-394-0136 or emailing eat@womanspace.org. Luminary kits will be available for purchase at this event.

Womanspace would like to thank its 2018 Communities of Light sponsors, which include Mason, Griffin & Pierson, Investors Bank, Conair, and Sheilagh Mescal Gunstensen.
