SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Those who lost their life this year as victims of domestic violence are being remembered.  Ten people were honored Wednesday night during a vigil put on by the Council on Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence at the Wilbur Aalfs Library.

As part of Domestic Violence Awareness month, the event not only honors those killed, but offers support for survivors. Some shared their story about finding the courage to seek help.

"It takes a great amount of encourage, I think, to come here and tell your story publicly. And we have a lot of respect and appreciation for the women who do that every year," said Deb Hogan, Advocate.

On display, T-shirts made by violence survivors and their children. It's part of the Clothes Line Project. It represents the experiences victims have gone through.
