From our partners at the National Network to End Domestic Violence:
"Many people don't know that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month - even though 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime and an average of 3 women die every day at the hands of a current or former intimate partner.
Join us Thursday, October 20 by wearing or displaying purple to raise awareness about domestic violence. Share a photo using the hashtag #PurpleThursday.
Join us and use #PurpleThursday as YOUR opportunity to get involved, take a stand against domestic violence, and express your solidarity with survivors of domestic violence and their families."
Join us this October, and all year, to honor, celebrate, and support those affected by domestic violence and the advocates that are working to end it: Ways to Give
