Paint Pima Purple on Oct. 17

Paint Pima Purple Logo_bumper_FINAL

As part of the Paint Pima Purple campaign, Pima County employees, friends and residents are encouraged on Friday, Oct. 17 to wear purple clothing,  and to help Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse to “Stuff the Bus” with donations to help victims of domestic abuse.

From PaintPimaPurple.org and Emerge! Center against Domestic Abuse:

Domestic abuse does not discriminate. It affects families of every background, people of every sexual orientation and gender identity, and people from every socio-economic class. It is widely considered one of the most under-reported crimes in the United States.

If someone told you they were being abused, would you know what to do? Hearing about someone’s abusive situation is scary, especially if they are looking to you for help and you have no idea what to do. Knowing how to respond can help you save a life.

Call the experts: Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse’s 24-hour hotline is available to people in abusive situations and for those who want to learn how to help a friend or loved one. Local: 520-795-4266 Toll-free: 888-428-0101. If you are in a dangerous or life-threatening situation, always call 911.
