Silent Witness Exhibit Displayed in Law Library

The law library is currently displaying the powerful
Silent Witness exhibit, which tells the stories of four
area domestic violence victims who lost their lives at
the hands of their husbands. The exhibit is presented
by the Syracuse Junior League, in partnership with
Vera House and with the sponsorship of Welch-Allyn.

The objective of the Silent Witness National Initiative
is to increase awareness of the impact of domestic violence.
To date, the Junior League's exhibit has been displayed in
18 places of business and viewed by more than 5,000
individuals. This year, the JLS was presented the
Oberlander Cup by the Syracuse Federation of Women's Club
for its efforts to bring this worthwhile project to the community.
