October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Every October, OPDV works to “Shine the Light on Domestic Violence” – a campaign to turn New York State purple to bring attention to the issue. Purple is the color chosen to help spread awareness of domestic violence. The campaign is a low- or no-cost way for organizations to show their support for ending violence against women.

Visit OPDV’s “Shine the Light” Toolkit to help you participate in this year’s “Shine the Light on Domestic Violence” campaign.
