For the second year in a row, San Francisco’s City Hall was lit bright purple to recognize the star of October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The San Francisco Department on the Status of Women, the San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium, City leaders, and over 100 community advocates from the domestic violence field gathered to watch San Francisco City Hall light up in purple for the second time in two years. W.O.M.A.N., Inc. staff members Mariya and Mary attended the event to join with the community during this recognition. The crowd wore purple glow necklaces and held signs to showcase the achievements of the Justice and Courage Oversight Panel and to indicate San Francisco’s continued commitment to ending domestic violence.
