October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Plumas Rural Services Domestic Violence Services is spreading awareness and promoting healthy relationships through the month of October.

PRS encourages participating in events to raise awareness about intimate partner violence and its harmful and long lasting effects on individuals, and the silent victims, the children.

Since 1987, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, or DVAM, has been observed across the U.S. during the month of October.

PRS, along with its community partners, is raising awareness by “lighting up the town” purple. Purple is the nationally recognized color associated with domestic violence awareness.

Light up the town purple! Purple twinkle lights will be distributed to downtown merchants on and around Quincy Main Street at the end of September as a show of solidarity and a zero tolerance policy regarding domestic violence. If your business is not on Main Street and you would like lights, contact [email protected] or call Sarah at 283-5675 ext. 867.
