This month is National Domestic Violence Prevention Month. The Women’s Resource Center’s Colleen Arnold says they have displays with information, buttons and purple and white ribbons around town and they encourage all citizens in the area to join the purple ribbon campaign. She explains the display of the purple ribbons in our community sends a strong message that there is no place for domestic violence in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces or schools. She adds the white ribbon is a symbol of men’s opposition to violence against women and wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls.
Arnold reminds you they will be holding their annual Take Back the Night event on November 25th at 5:15 in Pioneer Square on Main Street.
