In the last 30 years, purple has become a more common sight in October. That’s because October was declared by Congress in 1987 as National Domestic Violence Awareness month and the color purple and purple ribbons are used to raise awareness of domestic violence. The observation of the month grew from a “Day of Unity” held by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence beginning in 1981. The monthly observation has continued to grow into what it is today. As of late, the month has had a theme and the theme this year is, “Let’s Strengthen Our Community.” To honor the theme, Team Beale is making an effort to address domestic violence and bring further awareness of the issue to the base and the local community.
