As October draws to an end, Alexander Holburn wears purple at the office to support domestic violence awareness month. This marks our second year supporting Purple Light Nights, a campaign inviting people to display a string of purple lights throughout the month of October, to symbolize that domestic violence has no place in our community.
It’s not possible for us to shine purple lights where people can see them, but that doesn’t mean we can’t support women who are the overwhelming victims of this type of violence. According to the Canadian Women’s Foundation, half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16. In lieu of shining a purple light, our office is raising awareness to the prevalence of domestic violence and in support of its victims by wearing purple.
