SU Goes Purple for Domestic Violence Awareness Month
In honor of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), the Office of Health Promotion and the Peer Educators Encouraging Healthy Relationships and Sexuality (PEEHRS) are hosting events to raise awareness about domestic or dating violence and resources available for those impacted in the Syracuse University community.
As done annually in honor of this month, and as part of continued efforts to raise visibility and awareness, the Hall of Languages and Hendricks Chapel will be illuminated purple, the designated color for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, each evening as part of the “Shine the Light on Domestic Violence” statewide campaign.
The annual Clothesline Project art display in Panasci Lounge will run from Monday, Oct. 8, to Sunday, Oct. 14. The Clothesline Project is a visual display of T-shirts decorated by individuals impacted by interpersonal violence.
Offices on campus are invited to participate in the Go Purple Office Decorating Contest. As part of the contest, offices on campus are invited to decorate their spaces purple for the month to raise awareness. Student volunteers will judge the spaces from Monday, Oct. 22, to Friday, Oct. 26, and award certificates to winning offices. Offices must register by Monday, Oct. 15, at 11:59 p.m.
Another way to show support is by wearing purple on Thursday, Oct. 18. Post your photos of your offices, the Hall of Languages or yourself in purple using #SUGoesPurple.
