Domestic Violence Awareness Month

It’s October and you know what that means. It’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month. During this month we at the Crisis Center wear purple one day each week. We also collaborated with Koffee Junktion and The Bean Field to make special drinks to help spread awareness.

Also, we had a self-care night with Alexa Peterson and a self-defense class hosted by Aledo Military Arts Institute. 

Some of you may ask why the color purple for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The color purple is a symbol of peace, courage, survival, honor, and dedication to ending violence. It is a salute to survivors and those we have lost to domestic violence. Raising awareness of domestic violence is an important piece of working to end the cycle of violence.
