Relationship Violence Awareness Month (RVAM) recognizes issues of violence in intimate relationships and the impact they have on all of us. Purple is the symbolic color for RVAM and Alfred Lerner Hall will be illuminated in Purple for the entire month to show our support in the prevention and intervention of relationship violence, and connect with communities who are doing the same. Relationship violence has no place in the Columbia community.
Thursday, October 18 is Wear Purple Day. Join Sexual Violence Response (SVR) and Columbia Health in wearing purple on this day to highlight the issue of relationship violence and to show support.
