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 on a certain day each week. We also deliver doughnuts with purple frosting to those we work with to keep Mercer County residents safe as a thank you.

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.
