Go Purple with the YWCA for Domestic Violence Awareness Month
1 in 3 women in Utah will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and to help raise awareness about the issue of domestic violence in our community, we invite you and your business/organization to join us in wearing purple on Fridays throughout the month.

Take photos and tag @ywcautah with hashtag #YWCAgoesPurple and we'll share them to raise even more awareness.
