It's crucial to place posters in various establishments throughout the county, including employee break rooms, informational boards, and restrooms for all genders. We encourage you to consider placing them in your public and private restrooms.

Our team offers two variations of the posters, a tear-off style, and a laminated version. You can request your posters by contacting Amanda Fulk, Community Engagement Coordinator. When placing your order, kindly provide us with the version of the poster you prefer (including the image descriptor), the desired quantity, and your mailing information.

Silent Witness Exhibit

In 1990, a group of concerned women in Minnesota formed Arts Action Against Domestic Violence to address the alarming increase in women murdered by their partners or acquaintances. They created life-sized, free-standing, red wooden figures that bear the names of real women who were once part of a community, with friends, family, and children, but whose lives were tragically cut short by domestic violence.

Two years later, Alexandra House created its own Silent Witness exhibit to honor the memory of women and children who lost their lives due to domestic violence in Anoka County. This exhibit is part of a larger effort involving over 300 nationwide exhibits, united in the goal of ending domestic violence homicides.

Our Silent Witness Exhibit features 25 red silhouettes, each representing an Anoka County resident who lost their life to domestic violence. Each silhouette is inscribed with the name and personal story of the victim, serving as a poignant reminder of the destructive impact of domestic violence. The exhibit has been displayed at various events and venues throughout Anoka County, and we invite you to arrange for a Silent Witness Exhibit at your organization or business. We can customize the exhibit to fit your specific space requirements.
