An Evening of Raised Awareness 

Join us in observance of Black History Month, this February, as we explore the history of domestic violence within the African American community. 

This year's theme is to show your purple! Using the hashtag #ShowUsYourPurple and #DCFOF share photos of you, your organization, etc. wearing your purple on social media. Purple is used to show your support to those impacted by domestic violence.
