Domestic Violence Awareness Month

One in four Oklahoma women will suffer physical, emotional or mental abuse from a loved one at some point in her life. Show our community that you support these victims and survivors, and that you won't tolerate violence in our communty by taking part in YWCA OKC Domestic Violence Awareness Month activites.

Watch for a special commemoration honoring those lost in the last year to domestic violence. Starting October 11th, a field of purple flags will be erected on the south lawn of the Oklahoma State Capitol, NE 23rd and Lincoln Boulevard.

Another easy way to show your support during Domestic Violence Awareness Month is to become one of our Light Our City Purple Partners. Order purple light bulbs today for your porch, your business or your neighborhood landmark. Post photos on your social media or email us a snapshot so we can let our partners, clients and friends know you care.
