This November, 

Go Purple

Bring domestic violence out of the shadows and into the light

Together we’ll stop domestic violence

So everyone will be safe in their home

Why Purple?

Purple is the color of bruises.

It also symbolizes the courage, survival, honor and dedication it takes to end domestic violence

Did you know?

  • One in four women experience domestic violence.
  • Approximately every six days, a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner.
  • On any given night in Canada, 3,491 women and their 2,724 children sleep in shelters because it isn't safe at home.
  • The rate of domestic violence is likely much higher than we know; 70% of spousal violence is not reported to the police.
