Posted by Community Relations on 10/8/2014

October is national Domestic Violence Awareness month, and Phoenix Union is partnering with the mayor’s office to create awareness through the Paint Phoenix Purple initiative for the second year. Phoenix Union is the only school district with representation on the Domestic Violence Youth Education Taskforce, and schools will be holding four campus resource fairs, a Youth Town hall and an art contest. Schools will air public service announcements during the month. School community liaisons will be trained on the In Her Shoes curriculum, which gives participants the opportunity to better understand the circumstances of family violence, survivors and choices about relationships.
