Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The community at Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) is asking you to get involved by honoring survivors, speaking up against violence and harassing behaviors, and promoting healthy relationships.

Turn The Campus Purple is the universitywide initiative to bring attention to Domestic Violence Awareness Month, encouraging members of the community to wear purple or use purple disposables within their work sites during the month to support a violence-free environment.
