Wear purple Thursday, October 25
Join thousands of people on Thursday, October 25 by wearing purple―an outfit or accessories―for Purple Thursday, a day to honor domestic violence survivors. The DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence is incenting purple-wearing with a contest (PDF); winners will be announced in early November.
This event is one effort to make folks aware of this terrible problem during Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October).
