A group in Crowley is hoping to raise awareness about domestic violence.

In correlation with Domestic Violence Awareness Month the organization Shattered but not broken" hosted their second annual "Take Back the Night" march and vigil on Monday.

During the event group members acknowledged survivors of domestic violence and helped people recognize the signs of an abusive relationship. They marched from Mobley Field to the Crowley Police Department where a candlelight vigil was held.

"Everybody has a voice. I hope that everybody speaks up if they know someone that is living in a domestic violence situation, that they be a listening ear. Don't judge them. Know that there is help out there to help someone that is living through that situation and that they're not alone," said founder Shonetta Green
