October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Join us in helping to raise awareness by “Shining a Light” on the subject and bringing it out of the darkness!

This is the fifth year of the campaign, coordinated by the NYS Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence. From skyscrapers to bridges, storefronts to shopping centers, purple lights will illuminate the nights of October. Police cars and municipal vehicles will be displaying purple magnetic ribbons. Anyone can be part of the campaign – wear purple!
