A local organization that helps people affected by domestic violence is raising awareness.
Today Safenet hosted "An Empty Place at the Table" at the Erie Art Museum.
The piece is part performance set and part theater.
Three family members sat at a dinner table while a fourth chair sat empty.
Safnet officials say the empty chair represents those who have lost their lives to domestic violence.
October marks Domestic Violence Awareness month.
