Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Every October, we work hard to raise awareness within our community, educate about domestic violence, and to show support and solidarity with survivors. Learn more about what this month is all about and our efforts to observe it below.
Purple River Lights in Phoenix Park
For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, local businesses and individuals helped us light the River Lights in purple! Thank you to all our generous sponsors for making this year's DVAM a success!
Day of Unity - OCT. 6th
Oct 6th is the Day of Unity. This is a day where we honor the sacrifice of Officer Robert Bolton, our namesake. In honor of the Day of Unity, we have created two videos in an effort to preserve the history and evolution of Bolton Refuge House services and the social change around domestic violence, both locally and nationally.
Phase one: History and Context
Phase Two: Firsthand Accounts
Purple Porch Project
Every October, we encourage local community members and businesses to decorate their front porches and lawns in purple, the color of Domestic Violence Awareness! We look forward to the creativity that is put into these displays every year.
