On behalf of Liz's Daughter, we would like to invite you to our 4th Annual Twin Cities Brides March Against Domestic Violence on Friday, June 21st! Participating in the march or becoming a sponsor will contribute to ongoing domestic violence awareness, prevention, and education in our community. The Brides March is a visual protest against domestic violence. It provides an outlet for the community along with local law enforcement officers to speak out against domestic violence and pay tribute to every life that has been affected by domestic violence.

The 3 mile walk will start outside The Wellstone Center Neighborhood House in St. Paul and end at the state Capitol building. A short program with speakers will follow the march and a dinner reception will be held at Mancini's. Shuttle service will be provided back to The Wellstone Center after the program.

• Check-in/Registration begins at 11:30 AM
• March begins at 1:00 PM followed by a short program at the Capitol
• Reception with dinner & music at Mancini's from 4 - 8 PM (Note: The $10 reception dinner is not included in the event registration fee)

We wear the wedding dress as a visual reminder of change. It represents the change that takes place when a loving relationship becomes abusive. It represents the change that occurs when a life is taken at the hands of an abuser. It represents the changes that come when a life is free from abuse. The dress honors the lives that are cut short as a result of domestic violence, but it also serves as a symbol of hope and support for those who have survived and escaped violent relationships and living situations.

Domestic violence affects generations of families and everyone in the community. Our goal is to bring the problem of domestic violence out from the shadows and into the light, and speak out against it. Your voice can make a difference! Walk with us on June 21st!
