Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! In partnership with Pinnacle Community Services’ Passage House Domestic Violence Services and the Castellani Art Museum, Niagara University aims to raise awareness surrounding relationship violence by placing purple ribbons on the columns of the Castellani Art Museum. Each year, Dr. Jennifer Beebe (Counseling Education) and Dr. Dana Radatz (Criminology & Criminal Justice) co-organize a Domestic Violence Awareness Event, in partnership with several community organizations, that features a domestic violence survivor artwork exhibit at Castellani. In lieu of an event this year (due to the coronavirus pandemic), Pinnacle Community Services has urged local agencies, organizations, and individuals to place and showcase purple ribbons in their communities to help raise awareness. Please consider displaying and/or tying a purple ribbon in your office to show support!
