This last year, 119 Texas women lost their lives to domestic violence. During DVAM, we challenge all of Texas to Go Purple and strive for a state where no woman is killed by a husband, partner, or boyfriend. Look at the map. Where you see purple, those Texas counties were free from a domestic violence fatality this past year. Where you see white, you see where we must redouble our efforts due tragic fatalities. Join us and make Texas a safer state for all families
