Domestic Violence Awareness

Displaying purple throughout the community sends a strong message that there is no place for domestic violence in our homes, neighborhoods, schools and workplaces.

Residents, schools and employers can get started to help Paint Phoenix Purple with any of the following ideas:


  • Read and sign a Commitment to Act (pdf) and display it in a prominent place
  • Post a picture using #paintphxpurple. Use your own idea or the  “I Paint Phoenix Purple Because…” card
  • Wear purple ribbons
  • Wear purple clothing on October 19 for Wear Purple Day
  • Place purple ribbons on cars
  • Turn computer screen savers purple
  • Send out emails to employees with information on domestic violence
  • Post domestic violence awareness information on your website
