November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month and the Chatham Kent Women’s Centre is drawing attention to the forth year with the “Shine The Light” campaign.

The campaign originated out of the London Women’s Centre with communities participating across the province. The Shine The Light campaign promotes the use of the colour purple – long associated with domestic violence awareness.
The Chatham Kent Women’s Centre encourages organizations, business, churches, schools and individuals across Chatham-Kent to incorporate purple into their lives during the month of November by illuminating their offices and homes with purple lights.
Please note that purple bulbs and lights are available at the CK Women’s Centre for $10.00 each.
The annual Shine The Light campaign is a way for everyone to participate and spread awareness about domestic violence and how it negatively impacts thousands of individuals and families across our community.
