During the month of October 2012, Purple Light Nights®, a community campaign meant to raise awareness of the critical issue of domestic violence is being launched statewide. All Ohio residents are encouraged to shine a purple light during Domestic Violence Awareness Month- October 1 – 31, 2012. This campaign is designed to shine a light on a problem that is often associated with silence and shame. Three important goals of the campaign are: to create dialogue; to provide information about domestic violence and the resources available; and to engage Ohio communities to ensure the safety of women, men, teens and children.
For more information about the Purple Light Nights® campaign and some tools that are available to launch it on a community level, contact ODVN.
