Lighting AZ Purple

September 30, 2019

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Governor Doug Ducey is committed to raising awareness by lighting the State Capitol dome purple as a symbol of strength and hope to survivors of domestic violence and will launch the month-long Lighting Arizona Purple campaign. We encourage all Arizonans to join the Governor in taking a stand against domestic violence by learning about the issue and by lighting their own homes purple. For more information click here.

 

How you can help:

  • Purchase a purple light bulb from Home Depot and light your home or business purple throughout the month of October. A portion of all proceeds will go to supporting awareness and prevention services for domestic violence.
  • Display your support by printing the downloadable sign and displaying it at your home or office.
  • Participate in Wear Purple Day on Thursday, October 24.
  • Donate to a local domestic violence shelter. To find a local shelter near you and a list of items that are currently in need, click here.
  • Contact your local government leaders and non-profit organizations to see what they are doing to participate in Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
  • Organize a domestic violence training for your place of employment or send domestic violence related information to your colleagues.
  • Talk to your family members and friends about the importance of safe and healthy relationships.
  • Take a picture of how you’re supporting Domestic Violence Awareness Month and post it to social media using #LightingAZPurple and #EndDVinAZ.
  • Learn more about domestic violence through a recorded webinar or upcoming training through the Arizona Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. Register here.
  • Download the brochure, in English and Spanish, for more information on domestic violence and available resources.
  • Review the calendar for events taking place across the state during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
  • Become familiar with the Violence Against Women Act.
