Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2012
In 2010, we lost 142 Texas women to domestic violence. This 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.
Purple has historically been the color tied to domestic violence advocacy. This year, we’ve applied purple to our map of our annual Honoring Texas Victims: Domestic Violence Fatalities list.
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.
