Purple is a symbol of courage, survival and honour, and it also symbolizes the fight to end woman abuse.

November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month and the Chatham Kent Women’s Centre is asking you to show your support!

Light up your business, school, home and place of worship with purple lights, balloons, and streamers.

Stand in solidarity with abused women and support them in understanding that any shame and/or blame they may feel does not belong to them but to the perpetrators of their abuse.

The Shine the Light Campaign was first launched on October 15, 2010 in London, Ontario by the London Abused Women’s Centre.
