FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham League of Women Voters, Voices Against Violence, Framingham State University and MetroWest Daily News are hosting a panel discussion on Thursday, December 5 from 6:30 to 8;30 p.m. featuring experts in the Framingham area exploring the warning signs of domestic violence, action steps to prevent it, and how to help a loved one who may be experiencing violence or causing harm.

Following the panel discussion will be a candlelight vigil led by Mayor Spicer in remembrance of Jamia Maddrey, a Framingham resident whose life tragically ended in October of 2019.
