The group will march across 2700 West to the West Valley City Hall, 3600 S. 2700 West, where a program will begin at 6 p.m. featuring talks by Mayor Mike Winder, City Attorney Ryan Robinson and new Police Chief Lee Russo.

The public also is invited to view a display of more than 40 life-sized red silhouettes of metal, representing each person killed in domestic violence in West Valley City since the city was incorporated in 1980. The silhouettes will go up Monday in City Hall and remain on display through Oct. 17.

The events celebrate Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
