Shauna Kennedy-Carr founded Stop the Silence, a music-focused fundraiser, after she lost her sister to domestic violence in 2017. In recognition of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Stop the Silence is now hosting its second annual fall music festival to raise money for local organizations supporting victims and their families affected by domestic violence. Despite the somber cause, the family-friendly, harvest-themed event includes festive activities, including interactive games, a live auction, food and drink, live music by local artists and more. All proceeds from the festival support organizations working locally to aid domestic violence victims and to educate the community on this prevalent and dangerous issue: the YWCA of Spokane, NAOMI and Safe Passage in Coeur d’Alene.
