2022 Virtual Domestic Violence Homicide Service

The 34th annual Memorial Service will remember the Maryland adults and children who died as a result of domestic violence during the past 12 months. Between January 1 and December 31, 2021, 58 Marylanders lost their lives due to domestic violence.  These individuals were representative of all different ages, genders, socio-economic statuses, races, and ethnicities.

The names of the individuals from across Maryland who died as a result of domestic violence in 2021 will be read. We will also pay tribute to all the friends and families who are left behind because of these deaths, including at least 47 children. Special guest speakers will discuss the personal impact of these tragedies as well as the trends in these deaths, from which we can learn strategies to better prevent Intimate Partner Violence homicides. Finally, we will examine steps the Network and our partners have already taken to address these trends. A healing space after the service will be open to all attendees and moderated by MNADV staff.

The Memorial Service heightens awareness of domestic violence and reminds the community of the terrible toll that domestic violence takes each year on families in Maryland. It also provides us the opportunity to collectively grieve and collectively invest ourselves in creating change.
