Recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, elected officials donned purple to bring attention an important issue.
Wearing purple pays tribute to those who have died, and celebrates those who have survived, the pols say.
Assemblywoman Nily Rozic and Councilman Barry Grodenchik hit the streets to conduct outreach on resources available to the community.
“Partnering with the community to create programs and provide services is integral to any effort aiming to elevate domestic violence awareness,” Rozic said.
“Domestic violence is not only a woman’s issue; it is an issue that should concern and must concern every single person,” Grodenchik added. “We need to work together to ensure that our community understands the impact of domestic violence so that we can help stop abuse.”
