In October, as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we invite you to join us and Paint Pima Purple to raise awareness about this terrible problem and enlist the community’s help in putting an end to this abuse. Pima County promises help lead the nation in changing the culture in ways that stop domestic abuse from flourishing in homes throughout our community.

“Domestic violence causes far more pain than the visible marks of bruises and scars. It is devastating to be abused by someone that you love and think loves you in return. It is estimated that approximately 3 million incidents of domestic violence are reported each year in the United States.”
– Dianne Feinstein

“Domestic violence does not only happen to adults. Forty percent of girls age 14 to 17 report knowing someone their age who has been hit or beaten by a boyfriend, and approximately one in five female high school students reports being physically and/or sexually abused by a dating partner.”
– Dianne Feinstein
