Purple ribbons, t-shirts, and banners are a frequent sight this month because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The color purple is used to symbolize the strength and courage of the survivors and victims of domestic violence.
One of the keys to combatting Domestic Violence is awareness. Throughout October a number of vigils will be held and programs offered to bring light to this prevalent issue nationwide.
