DV Awareness Month

As many of you are aware, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Personally, I've vowed to involve as many people as possible in this campaign on a daily basis throughout my life. But this month in particular brings in an overwhelming number of participants and people interested in joining our cause!  


My message is simple:

  • Don't be silent if you suspect someone is being abused. Silence Kills! Reach out and talk to them about your concerns.  
  • Don't do it alone. Enlist the help of family and friends. Bring in a professional for guidance and therapy.  
  • Don't push the victim into getting help. (They are already being abused at home, always speak to them with love and let them feel like they are making the decisions). If they are not ready to involve family and friends, there are many confidential resources and hotlines available by clicking here. 
  • Most importantly, call the police and involve the authorities if the victim is in immediate danger.


It's time to STOP minding your own business and SPEAK out against abuse. You can be someone's hero and help save their life!




The Purple Reign Campaign Be A Hero, Speak Out Against Domestic Violence & Abuse

Comments

This is a cause worth supporting, thanks for all the work you do Purple!

Thank you Angela!

To be honest, I never paid attention to causes like this before. I recently found a close friend of mine was being abused by her boyfriend. Now I am constantly trying to find new information and help for her. I never understood why victims don't just leave but I can see it is more complicated than that. This is a senstive and hard cause. i wish you luck!

Thank you Tony for speaking out and getting involved. Please message me if you would like additional information or resources for your friend. You very well may have saved her life, dont give up on her, and continue to be a supportive friend.
