Domestic violence impacts millions of people each year, but it can be prevented. It requires the collective voice and power of individuals, families, institutions and systems — all of which are a valuable and powerful component to transforming our communities.

During Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, the UAB Employee Assistance & Counseling Center invites you to explore ways to get involved, as well as community and digital resources for domestic violence, below. And follow the EACC on Facebook and Instagram throughout the month of October for more information and opportunities to help spread awareness.

Go Purple and Take a Moment of Silence

Wear purple on October 19 to show your support. Snap a picture of yourself or department dressed in purple shirts, scarves, ties, etc. then submit it online or post to social media and tag the EACC on Facebook and Instagram.

Then at noon, the EACC will observe a moment of silence in honor of all those affected by domestic violence. Please join us, wherever you are, in this effort to raise awareness and feel free to invite friends and co-workers to join you in this time of reflection.
