COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (KMTV) - People came together in Council Bluffs to shine a light on domestic violence.
The Catholic Charities Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse Program held a candlelight vigil in Bayliss Park Thursday night.
Those who attended hear survivors' stories and a held a moment of silence in memory of victims.
"I think an event like this is really important because it does bring awareness to domestic violence which is an issue that is really difficult to talk about and it's hard to realize that it does happen in our communities," Katie Choquette from Catholic Charities said.
The Clothesline Project was also part of the vigil. It's a t-shirt art project designed by domestic violence victims.
