ABOUT THE APRIL 11, 2019 VIGIL
Silent Observer is partnering with the Kent County Victim Witness Unit in planning a Community Prayer & Candlelight Vigil to honor Victims of Crime on April 11, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. on the Kent County Courthouse steps, 180 Ottawa NW, Grand Rapids, MI.
This 30-minute vigil will include community members praying for our children and the safety of our community. We will hear from Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young, Prosecutor Chris Becker and Jerline Riley, a Grand Rapids resident who lost her son to homicide.
Additionally, the names of victims of crime who would like to be remembered or recognized will be read out loud so anyone wishing to submit their name or a loved one’s name should email firstname.lastname@example.org with that information by April 5.
Immediately following the candlelight vigil, the attendees will walk over to the Grand Rapids Chamber, 250 Monroe NW Ste. 150, where light refreshments will be served.
