Domestic Violence Awareness Month is coming!
We hope you’re busy planning to Shine the Light on Domestic Violence this October! This year, we’ve reorganized our Shine the Light toolkit to make it easier to find the resources and information you need to plan your activities. Don’t forget to send photos to opdvpurple@opdv.ny.gov and post them to social media with the hashtag #shinethelight. And note that this year’s Wear Purple Day is Thursday, October 20!
