(WTNH) — October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. One Thursday each October is Purple Thursday where people are asked to wear purple to raise awareness of domestic violence.
This year Purple Thursday is October 24th. It’s considered a national day of action which according to the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence gives people an easy way to show their commitment to promoting healthy relationships.
The CCADV also is asking people to take a selfie or group picture wearing purple on that day and post it to social media with #PURPLETHURSDAY and tag the CCADV on Facebook @CTCoalitionAgainstDomesticViolence or on Twitter and Instagram @CTCADV.
