Exhibit reveals lives lost to domestic violence
Anyone who drives by the Civic Center in downtown Ruston will notice a crowd of red silhouettes lingering on the front lawn.
Presented by the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team, each silhouette in “The Silent Witnesses” exhibit represents a life lost to domestic violence in the five-parish area DART serves, including Lincoln, Jackson, Union, Bienville and Claiborne. Next year, Winn and Grant parishes will be added to the display.
Only statistics from the last 12 years, since DART has been compiling information, are represented.
