City of Troy goes purple for Domestic Violence Awareness

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The month of October not just all things pink for breast cancer awareness. You’ll see plenty of purple too.

That’s because it represents the cause to raise awareness against domestic violence.

On Wednesday the New York State Office for the prevention of domestic violence is designating the day as “Turn the State Purple,” inviting everyone to wear the color to show their support.

You’ll also see plenty of purple in Downtown Troy at the Unity House Wednesday evening. It’s holding an open house for domestic violence services from 4 to 6 p.m.

There will be an award ceremony for local advocates leading the charge to end violence against men, women and children.
