Second Annual Purple Out

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The month-long observance provides an opportunity to raise awareness and educate our community on the pattern of abusive behaviors that many women and men endure while also celebrating the survivors of domestic violence. Purple Out is a regional event that brings together domestic violence first responders to promote awareness by wearing purple on a designated day in October. The color purple symbolizes courage, persistence, honor, and the commitment to ending domestic violence.
