TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Around 20 people per minute are physically abused by a partner in the United States.

People right here in the Wabash Valley are doing their part to combat these statistics.
The Council on Domestic Abuse held a candlelight vigil on Monday.
Supporters released balloons as part of the ceremony.
