DART vigil to remember those lost

A group of young women pray and listen at the 2010 candlelight vigil hosted by the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team.

With close to 30 people lost to domestic violence in the past 15 years, the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team has taken a proactive stance to inform area residents.

Cathy Ayo, DART’s executive director, said DART serves five parishes, including Lincoln Parish, and awareness will be brought to each one.
