C.A.S.A. of Sedalia Holds Candlelight Vigil for Domestic Violence Victims


C.A.S.A. VigilAbout 20 people gathered outside the Stauffacher Center on the State Fair Community College campus for the “Speak Out Against Domestic Violence” candlelight vigil.  While the wind prevented the candles from staying lit, the speakers didn’t disappoint.

First up was Juanita Holmes, LCSW.  She offered the crowd some startling statistics on domestic violence as well as some definitions of abuse that most of us don’t think about.  Visit C.A.S.A.’s website for information.

Next we heard from Lisa Griffith.  Lisa is a domestic violence survivor that told us of her amazing journey that spanned through three decades with multiple marriages.  She told us how she justified the abuse in her mind and how she coped.  Then of how she eventually came out of the abyss to be healthy today.

We also heard from Rachel Sallee.  She is a student at SFCC who relocated to Sedalia as she escaped her situation.  She illustrated how one peels back the layers as they go through the process of surviving an abusive relationship.

C.A.S.A. offers may different services for women and children.  If you or someone you know is in a bad situation that they don’t know how to get out of, contact them.  They’ll help you/them.
