Carolyn’s note:  I have my purple long sleeved tshirt ready to wear for Wear Purple Day. For the DV Awareness month, I’ve already been to a candidate forum on this issue, plus a victims/survivors’ play called “23 Bruises” at the Loft.   For other activities this month, here’s my previous post:

Their DV Awareness month calendar says to take your photo today and share on social media, tagging Emerge! or send to communications@emergecenter.org. Here’s the link to their calendar:
