Go Purple

This year, the Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV) challenges all of Texas to "Go Purple" and strive for a state where no woman loses her life as a result of family violence. "An iconic symbol in and of itself, the map of Texas drives much of our collective consciousness and understanding of ourselves as a state and as a people. TCFV has taken our Texas map and shaded those counties in which no fatalities occurred in the color purple. For those involved in efforts to end domestic violence, purple represents a uniting hue for the purposes of awareness and activism. White counties mark the killing of at least one woman. TCFV calls on each of us to imagine a state in which all counties (and our entire state) GO PURPLE."
