National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Category : Blog
As you drove around the city this month, you might have noticed purple porch lights. A display of purple lights serves as an act of solidarity with those who have been or are still facing domestic violence. Started in October 2007 by the Covington Domestic Violence Task Force in Covington, United States, the Purple Lights Nights public awareness and educational campaign has been a way to honor victims who died as a result of domestic violence and give hope to survivors. It is held during the month of October, which has been recognized internationally as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
