Greensboro, NC Nonprofit and Guilford County to Paint the City PurpleTM To Impact Domestic Violence
The Sherri Denese Jackson Foundation for the Prevention of Domestic Violence to celebrate National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Paint The City PurpleTM In Partnership with Guilford County and the Guilford County Family Justice Center
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.
