November is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
For the last decade, the Wrapped in Courage Campaign has been growing awareness of gender-based violence across Ontario through purple scarves. These scarves mean something different to everyone who wears them. Some wear a purple scarf during Woman Abuse Prevention month and the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender Based Violence to show their support for local GBV services, while some are signaling to survivors that they are believed, valued and never alone. For some, they wear a purple scarf to remember those who lost their lives to femicide and show they are committed to change.
Just like survivors of gender-based violence across Ontario, every Wrapped in Courage 2022 Campaign Purple Scarf is unique!
