Why Wear Purple?
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and purple is the color you can wear to show support of ending domestic violence and bringing awareness to the issue in our community and across the county.
You can also incorporate a purple ribbon in your social media profile picture or cover photo and explain what it means.
Awareness + Action = Social Change
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
- Step 1: become aware of the issues and what your community is doing to prevent them
- Step 2: take action by spreading your awareness or getting involved in your community’s efforts
- Step 3: enact social change (i.e. changing the way issues are perceived and handled in order to create a community that works FOR survivors rather than against survivors)
