Purple Challenge: Be Involved

On October 3, in support of Domestic Violence Awareness month, the JWU community banded together in the Pepsi Forum to answer the “Purple Challenge” by sporting purple and posing for a group picture. Couldn’t make it for the group picture? No worries, because every Thursday in October is “Purple Challenge Thursday.” To help continue to build awareness around domestic and sexual violence prevention, wear purple every Thursday in October, take a picture of your people in purple and submit your pic to hrandpayrollprograms@jwu.edu.

You can also show your support and satisfy your sweet tooth with purple smoothies and purple cupcakes, available for purchase every Thursday in October (10, 17, 24 and 31) at Harbor View and Snowden. For more information about how you can you can stay aware, informed and involved in regard to this national issue, and to check out the Purple Challenge Picture Gallery, log in to HRpulse. Pictures will continue to be added to the gallery throughout October, so check back each week to see if you recognize anyone.
