Domestic Violence Awareness Month Toolkit

Each year, over 100 Texas women lose their lives to domestic violence. This DVAM, we challenge all of Texas to Go Purple and strive for a state where no woman loses her life as a result of family violence.
Purple has historically been the color tied to domestic violence advocacy. To Go Purple is to celebrate the progress of our movement to end family violence. We are excited to share these tools and activities to help power your advocacy work in your community in October and throughout the year. Have questions about the toolkit, or want to download the entire toolkit as a zip file? Contact Danielle Ohlemacher or call 1-800-525-1978.

Take Action!

Sign the Purple Postcard

This year’s theme for DVAM is support full funding! The biannual Texas Legislature is convening in 2017, and now is a critical time to organize and gather support for full funding of domestic violence programs. Together, we can turn awareness into action, and make sure that every victim and survivor in our state has access to life-changing and life-saving domestic violence services.

Sign the Postcard now to show your support for life-changing family violence services!
