On Saturday, October 11, 2014, at 9 a.m., the Orange County Domestic Violence Task Force will hold its annual awareness event and walk in Harbor Park (located in the lakefront area of Baldwin Park at the end of New Broad Street).

This is a city/police department hosted event.

Lincoln County Annual Candle Light Vigil

Please join the Lincoln County Family Violence Council for their annual Candle Light Vigil. The organization will be displaying the Clothesline Project, having a balloon release, and enjoying music and dance in honoring survivors of family violence and those that have passed on.

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.

Dress to End DV

This event is to encourage the community to wear purple to end domestic violence and raise awareness. 

Dress to Express

A simple way you can make a difference is to join the "Dress to Express Campaign."  On Monday October 15th, Between Friends is encouraging people to wear purple to express that healthy relationships DO exist and to show their commitment to ending intimate partner abuse. While dressed in purple, Between Friends is asking people to take pictures of themselves and their coworkers and to send them to info@betweenfriendschicago.org.  Feel free to hold up a company sign or message in your photograph.
