October 21 Is an All-Purple Thursday

October 21, 2021

GFWC is encouraging clubwomen throughout the Federation to wear purple today for Purple Thursday, an annual observance when domestic violence prevention advocates wear the color purple during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic violence is a silent epidemic, and wearing purple is a powerful way to break the silence and show support for all survivors.

Domestic violence awareness and prevention is a year-round focus at GFWC’s Signature Program and Purple Thursday is just one way that our clubwomen can demonstrate their commitment to this important cause.
