Let's send a strong message that there is no place for domestic violence in our city, county, neighborhoods, schools, or workplaces. This can be achieved by displaying the color purple during the month of October. It is time for community togetherness and to say NO MORE. Domestic violence is one of the most widespread, dangerous, health and safety challenges today. This October, we are inviting you to help us Paint Greensboro Purple in observance of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic violence is an insidious crime that can be prevented. To do so, the entire community must be educated and engaged. Each of us has a place in creating healthy relationships, families, and communities.
The two week campaign will focus on the community to: (1) demonstrate the city commitment to this issue, (2) garner media attention, (3) form collaborations to streamline and improve services to victims, (4) enlist the community in changing their perception of domestic violence and, (5) increase community awareness and advocacy. No longer is it acceptable for people to feel unsafe in their homes. Domestic violence impacts us all. When we are unsafe in our homes, we are unsafe in our communities. Therefore, we have to unite to end domestic violence since our future depends on it.
