"Together We Can End Domestic Violence"
Los Angeles elected officials created a "Pearl of Wisdom" art piece that was included in an exhibit at the East Bridge Gallery in Los Angeles City Hall to coincide with October 2015 Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
This collaborative art project was designed to help survivors recognize personal strengths, using the metaphor of "pearls" as treasures that form inside an oyster in response to an irritant. Survivors of domestic violence gain strength as they create healthy, violence-free lives that, in turn, offer stories that inspire and nurture others to mobilize the community to end domestic violence.
A press conference was held on October 13, 2015 as a Day of Action event featuring comments by Mayor Garcetti and several city officials bringing attention to the often overlooked issue of domestic violence later in life. A highlight of the press conference was the Dr. Marjorie Braude Award presentation to a special honoree for innovative collaboration in serving victims of domestic violence. AWBW was on hand throughout the day to guide a hands-on workshop for guests to create their own "Pearl of Wisdom."
Following the press conference guests gathered in City Council Chambers where members of the Task Force amplified survivor voices to raise awareness about domestic violence later in life. The event concluded with a presentation of certificates of appreciation to members of the Los Angeles Police Department who have gone above and beyond in their response to domestic violence.
