Speaking out on domestic violence

Prior to Wednesday evening’s Remember My Name Candlelight Vigil at Ka’ahumanu Church in Wailuku, participants wave signs along High Street. “We help others who are aware of domestic violence situations to be courageous enough to help victims out of these situations,” said event co-organizer Michele Navarro Ishiki. “­And to do it without judgment.” Participants at the vigil, including Maui County Police Chief Tivoli Faaumu (second photo) and county Prosecuting Attorney Don Guzman, read the names of more than 140 domestic violence victims killed in Hawaii since records started begin kept in 1996, co-organizer Mahina Martin said.
