Check out the infor­ma­tion below about two very impor­tant com­mu­ni­ty events com­ing up this week, host­ed by SAFE San Juans:

  1. Fri­day, Octo­ber 21st, 12:00 noon – Silent Wit­ness Cam­paign Vig­il: You may have already noticed the Silent Wit­ness sil­hou­ettes on the lawn of the leg­isla­tive build­ing, across from the cour­t­house. This dis­play is meant to hon­or those who died from domes­tic vio­lence in 2015. Please take some time to walk among the fig­ures or write your thoughts in the jour­nal pro­vid­ed on site. SAFE San Juans will be host­ing a vig­il in hon­or of these vic­tims at the site on Octo­ber 21st at noon.
  1. Sun­day Octo­ber 23rd, 2:00pm‑4:00pm – Allied Social Ser­vice Ini­tia­tive, Com­mu­ni­ty Aware­ness Event: Come out to the old med­ical cen­ter build­ing (550 Spring St.) on Sun­day, Octo­ber 23rd, for an after­noon of fun and infor­ma­tion about the new allied social ser­vice project being spear­head­ed by SAFE San Juans. Also fea­tured will be the excit­ing new vision for The COVE — Carl­son Youth Cen­ter of the San Juan Islands. The event will be a won­der­ful oppor­tu­ni­ty to catch the ener­gy for this great ini­tia­tive! There will be a vir­tu­al tour rep­re­sent­ing the fin­ished project, as well as self-guid­ed walk-throughs of the build­ing past our artist’s ren­der­ings. There will also be sev­er­al short pre­sen­ta­tions by project leads, a com­pli­men­ta­ry hot dog feed (host­ed by the Stand Up Men), ample time for ques­tions & answers, and sign-ups for those who would like to take on a more active role in this project ben­e­fit­ing the entire community!

Be sure to mark your cal­en­dars and join SAFE San Juans in their work to empow­er our islands to live free of abuse.
