Each year the ECCAFV works with the NYS Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and many other DV programs throughout the State to "Shine a Light on Domestic Violence" by asking workplaces, businesses, schools, etc. to "Go Violet" for one day in October.
On Wednesday, October 17, 2012, the ECCAFV is asking workplaces throughout Erie County to wear purple and post information about the impact of domestic violence on the workplace. This small action by workplaces helps to increase awareness of the issues of domestic violence and create a safe space for victims to reach out for help if they are in need.
