Please join the Bethany House and The Toledo Lucas County Public Library as we present the Northwest Ohio Silent Witness Project Unveiling Ceremony.

The Silent Witness Project is a national initiative, founded in 1990 in Minnesota, in response to an epidemic of domestic violence homicides. There are local Silent Witness Project chapters in all 50 states. This event is free and open to the public; however, due to the intense nature of the program, organizers ask that those in attendance do not bring young children.

The 2022 Silent Witness Project is made up of more than 50 free-standing, life-sized wooden silhouettes, each one bearing the name and story of a girl or woman whose life ended violently at the hands of a husband, boyfriend, dating partner or stalker. All Silent Witnesses in the collection were from northwest Ohio and all were murdered within the past decade.

During the unveiling, the silhouettes will be revealed one by one in a solemn ceremony. Each Silent Witness will be represented by an individual reader, who will recount the story of the girl or woman represented by that figure.
