Did you know? 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. An average of 3 women die every day at the hands of a current or former intimate partner. Join us by wearing or displaying purple on Oct. 22 for this national observance dedicated to raising awareness about domestic violence.
Use this as YOUR opportunity to get involved, take a stand against domestic violence, and express your solidarity with survivors of domestic violence and their families.
