The holiday season usually brings thoughts of family and togetherness, but the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and the Mecklenburg County Women's Commission want to bring attention to domestic violence.

This year in North Carolina, 62 people have been killed by the hands of someone who was supposed to have loved them.

For the seventh year, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Domestic Violence Advocacy Council,
Domestic Violence Speakers Bureau and Mecklenburg County’s Community Support Services Women’s Commission will light the domestic violence memorial tree at CMPD headquarters.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m.
