Music in the Park to put on special show for the Hope & Justice Project
MADAWASKA, Maine — The Hope & Justice Project is joining together with Music in the Park for the annual Rock It Up on Sept. 5 — the last night of Music in the Park — to celebrate Hope & Justice’s 40th anniversary.
The Hope & Justice Project is a domestic violence resource center that has been in operation for 40 years, and has done the final Music in the Park for the last three years.
“We work with survivors of domestic violence and abuse,” said Tammy Albert with the Hope & Justice Project. “We do a lot of education and prevention and this event is part of our awareness.”
With Domestic Violence Awareness month in October, the center is working to boost the topic now even though it offers education throughout the year.
“We feel by having these awareness events that it further educates our community, lets them get involved, and see that it really happens in the community,” Albert said. “Even if one person goes to the event and hears our message that we are here to help, we want to be their support.”
Deejay Adam Ouellette will be there spinning tunes for this family-friendly event. Food vendors are expected to be there. A 50/50 raffle will be held during the event as well.
Music starts at 6 p.m. Sept. 5.
