Shine the Light on Domestic Violence marks successful 10th anniversary

The Shine the Light on Domestic Violence campaign achieved two milestones this year. The campaign marked its 10th anniversary and for the first time, each of New York’s 62 counties hosted an event, initiative or effort that used the color purple to raise awareness and support victims and survivors.

Check out our #ShinetheLight Facebook album and if you haven’t already, send us your photos: opdvpurple@opdv.ny.gov.
