GREENSBORO, N.C. - Oct. 24, 2018 - PRLog -- The Sherri Denese Jackson Foundation for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, Inc. (SDJF), a well-respected Greensboro-based nonprofit, will commemorate its 10th Anniversary in their plight to end domestic violence with its national trademark campaign, Paint The City PurpleTM, a local, state and national domestic violence awareness effort. On Saturday, October 27, 2018, during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, The Sherri Denese Jackson Foundation for the Prevention of Domestic Violence Inc. invites the community, and like-minded organizations and corporations to unify at 12:00 noon in the parking lot of The W On Elm Restaurant, 234 S. Elm Street, Greensboro, N.C. and canvass downtown Greensboro to spread the word about domestic violence. Guilford County and the Guilford County Family Justice Center are partnered, and have been since 2015. This campaign is designed to bring awareness, and prevent and stop domestic violence in communities locally, state-wide, and nationally. The event is intended to offer everyone, from survivor to abuser, and like-minded organizations and corporations, a chance to become involved. ​This can be achieved by displaying the color purple during the month of October. Domestic violence is an insidious crime that can be prevented. To do so, the entire community must be educated and engaged. Each of us has a place in creating healthy relationships, families, and communities.  The two week campaign will focus on the community to: (1) demonstrate the city commitment to this issue, (2) garner media attention, (3) form collaborations to streamline and improve services to victims, (4) enlist the community in changing their perception of domestic violence and, (5) increase community awareness and advocacy. All in attendance are encouraged to take the pledge to continue to spread awareness to the end of domestic violence.

Leading up to this annual event, Portia Shipman, Founder and Executive Director of the SDJF, made several exciting reveals. This summer, she revealed the architectural drawings for what will become the renewed "A Purple Door House," a single family home anonymously donated to SDJF to advance its efforts. The home endured structural damage during a recent tornado and is still in need of the in-kind donations and the support of donors. Shipman also announced the first-ever National Registry of Loss Loved Ones™ for individuals whose death was a result of domestic violence. Further, she announced the dedication of the Mattie L. Deloney's Garden of Peace, honoring the  memory of the official donor of "A Purple Door House."

Most importantly, on October 27th, supporters can count on a sense of community and compassionate dialogue that educates about what each person can do to help in this epidemic and how to get help in a domestic violence situation. While these events are meant to educate, and bring awareness to domestic violence, this 3rd Paint The City Purple campaign is a very conscious effort to save many more lives.
