Week Without Violence

October 17-21

Each year, YWCA associations around the country, friends, partners, and supporters come together in the third week of October for a Week Without Violence, where we raise awareness about the devastating effects of domestic violence. As the largest network of domestic violence service providers, we support victims of domestic violence in communities around the country and work, year-round, on legislative actions and issue education that can bring an end to all forms of violence against women.

90 community members will rappel down to help others rise up by going “Over The Edge” of the Maverik Base Camp building (13 stories). Rappellers are asked to raise $1,000 to help raise much needed funds for domestic violence and sexual assault services at the Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center. With a collaborative model that helps men and women in abusive relationship or those who have been sexually assaulted, the Family Justice Center offers free, confidential, walk-in services. Reserve your rappel or donate to a team.
