Purple Pumpkin Project is happening right now through the month of October. The purpose of thIS project is to increase awareness and increase conversations about domestic violence in our community.
It is domestic violence awareness month!
Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, help NNEDV to raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end violence. Here is what you can do: Donate or Volunteer, Join the National Week of Action, Wear Purple, Chefs Take a Stand, Speak Out. Join the Conversation Online or Read a Book.
