The Purple Lights campaign mission is to shine a light on domestic violence, in all its forms – physical, psychological, emotional or financial. The goal is to spread awareness and provide resources for anyone in need of support or help. Let’s all work together and ensure that domestic violence has nowhere to hide in our community.
