Vigil held to halt domestic violence

Anti-domestic violence activists held a candlelight vigil Tuesday night outside the NYPD's 90th Precinct.



Survivors and community leaders marched from Continental Army Plaza Park to the precinct building for the annual event. They carried signs and chanted against domestic violence.



Assemblywoman Maritza Davila, a victim of domestic violence, spoke at the vigil in support of other people who have been affected.



"I come out every year because I want them to know that there is nothing to be ashamed of," she said. "Domestic violence can happen to anyone."
