Pittsburghers of different ethnic backgrounds, faiths, socioeconomic status and more, gathered throughout the day on March 5 at the Society for Contemporary Craft, in the Strip District, for the Dignity & Respect Campaign of Greater Pittsburgh’s third annual Ceramic Tile Quilt Event to raise awareness for domestic violence. Participants of the event held annually during Women’s History Month, not only helped to raise awareness, but they also used their creativity to leave messages of hope for those impacted by this issue.

More than 100 guests attended this event to paint ceramic tiles that will be assembled and displayed at the Center for Victims, which offers emergency housing, counseling and advocacy services for victims of domestic abuse and other crimes, in hopes of adding comfort during the healing process.
