October is Relationship Violence Awareness Month

Every October, during Relationship Violence Awareness Month (RVAM), Sexual Violence Response (SVR) recognizes issues of violence in intimate relationships and the impact they have on all of us. Purple is the symbolic color for RVAM, and we will light Alfred Lerner Hall in purple lights for the entire month to show our support in the prevention and intervention of relationship violence, and connect with communities across the country who are doing the same. Relationship violence has no place in the Columbia community.

Wear Purple Day

SVR invites members of the Columbia community to join us on Thursday, October 19 for WEAR PURPLE DAY to highlight the issue of relationship violence and to show support to the survivors among us.
