New Jersey Spotlight on Domestic Violence ... so Join the 'Purple Gang'

New Jersey Spotlight on Domestic Violence ... so Join the 'Purple Gang'
BY SENATOR DIANE ALLEN
N.J.'s 7TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Many people use fashion as an outlet to express themselves. The clothes we wear are unquestionably one of the most visible statements we can make in daily life. That is why I will be wearing purple on October 23rd (“Purple Thursday”) as part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I have called on my colleagues in the legislature to wear purple, the official color of Domestic Violence Awareness, and now I am urging all New Jersey residents to do the same.

Domestic violence has been brought to the forefront of the nation’s attention in recent weeks. While high-profile cases involving professional athletes or other famous persons make headlines, there are acts of domestic violence happening right now – many in homes that you would never suspect. Domestic violence knows no age, race, gender, level of education or economic status. It affects millions of people all across our country each year.
