October Declared ‘Domestic Violence Awareness Month’ in Queen Creek
Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney recently signed a proclamation declaring the month of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Queen Creek is joining cities and towns across the valley in Lighting Arizona Purple, an effort to help end domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, the Law Enforcement & Community Chambers Building will be purple to raise awareness of this important issue. The community is encouraged to participate in the awareness effort by wearing purple on Thursday, Oct. 18.
“Domestic violence destroys families and weakens communities, with long-lasting impacts,” said Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney. “It is dangerous for victims and our first responders. This month provides an opportunity to bring awareness to this serious issue and share information about available support.”
