October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

During the month of October, Amador County is turning PURPLE. Domestic Violence Awareness Month is nationally recognized in October, and Operation Care is striving to reduce the incidents of intimate partner violence and to promote healthy relationships. We are "Turning Amador County Purple" to raise awareness that as a community, every one of us has a responsibility to stand with survivors, and stop the cycle of violence...

" We hope to rally our community against domestic violence, while showing some good old-fashioned Amador County pride. We hope everyone will support healthy relationships by wearing purple bracelets, pins and ribbons during the month of October." 
Natalie Vetter
Prevention and Outreach Supervisor
