October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, during this month, the Alliance holds events to spread awareness and support the victims of domestic violence and abuse. This year, 2023, we have several events being held and different days to get our community involved. As you keep reading you will see a calendar with our events and we hope you all can get involved and support a huge cause that is of huge importance to us at the Alliance Against Family Violence.

October 2023

This year we are all about community engagement in supporting survivors. On the calendar, many events are listed as social media events and self-events. These include our Purple Up Day which will be a competition where all submissions with our hashtag (#alliancepurpleup) will be entered into a drawing for a gift package. We also have self-care Sunday which is a day for you to take time and take a self-care day in which we will be posting some self-care events you may participate in. 

Our main event this year is our candlelight vigil, which will be on October 28th, at 6 p.m. at the Leavenworth County Justice Center (601 S 3rd St) for victims of domestic violence as we light candles and invite anyone to come to support the event. Below you will see a timeline of our events this month and hope everyone to be involved!
