Week Without Violence is part of a global movement with YWCAs across the country and around the world to end violence against women and girls. At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. Join us from October 18 – 23, as we hold events, share information and stories, advocate, and more with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.
Attend our virtual panel discussion with community partners to see how we can move beyond resilience for our clients, from surviving to thriving.
Join us as we empower ourselves and our community to take action against violence.
Purple Thursday is a national day of action each October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is an opportunity to raise awareness about domestic violence in an easily accessible way for people to show their commitment to promoting healthy relationships that are free from abuse in its many forms. Please outwardly show your soldiarity against domestic violence by wearing purple and igniting a conversation about ending domestic violence.
