The sixth annual March Against Domestic Violence will take place Oct. 3 on the Mall in front of Fogler Library (rain location: North Pod of Memorial Union).
The Maine Business School (MBS) Corps sponsors the march. Partners are Title IX Student Services, Student Life, UMaine Athletics, UMaine Army ROTC, Rising Tide Center, Partners for Peace, and other organizations.
Following the march, U.S. Rep. Jared Golden is scheduled to deliver remarks. Other scheduled speakers include Robert Dana, vice president for student life and dean of students at UMaine; Casey Faulkingham, community response team leader at Partners for Peace; representatives of several on-campus groups, including MBS Corps, Male Athletes Against Violence (MAAV) and UMaine Army ROTC; as well as members of the community who have been affected by domestic violence.
The ceremony will close with a moment of silence, followed by the reading of names of people killed in 2018 and 2019 in Maine as a result of domestic violence. Flowers in remembrance of their lives will be placed on the library steps.
Last year’s march drew around 200 participants from numerous organizations. Everyone is encouraged to attend and support the cause. For more information, email Nory Jones at email@example.com.
