The University of Southern Indiana’s Sexual Assault and Gender Violence Prevention Committee will host their sixth annual Flowers on the Lake ceremony at 4 p.m. Thursday, October 11 in front of the Liberal Arts building. The ceremony, held in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, is free and open to the public.

Flowers on the Lake is an annual ceremony to honor those who have lost their lives to domestic violence, and raise awareness about the warning signs of relationship abuse. Students will speak during a brief presentation about lives that have been lost as a result of domestic violence, which will be followed by a moment of silence. Guests will then proceed to Reflection Lake to scatter flower petals on top of the water in honor of survivors and in memory of victims of domestic violence.

This event is sponsored by the USI Sexual Assault & Gender Violence Prevention Group and Albion Fellows Bacon Center.
