Oct. 2, 2012 - PRLog -- October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and purple ribbons are a reminder of not only the victims, but also the services that are available to help.
During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we remember those who fought this battle and continue to lead the campaign for all DV victims.  Beginning October 1st, pin a purple ribbon on your collar, create an arm band for your wrist or tie a purple ribbon around your tree.  

Help bring awareness to this issue by wearing a purple ribbon throughout October and telling people why you are wearing it.

If you need help, please call Legal Aid at 918-428-HELP (4357) or 888-534-5243  or call the National DV Hotline at 800-799-SAFE (7233).
