Purple Lights Project

The Community Coordination For Women's Safety in New Westminster is undertaking the "Purple Lights Project" again this year from April 15-28, 2012 (Prevention of Violence Against Women Week - April 15 to 21 and Victims of Crime Awareness Week - April 22 to 28).

The goal of the Purple Light Project is to have all residents/businesses shine a purple light on every front porch or hand a string of purple lights in every business window to send the message that "Domestic Violence Has NO Place in Our Community".    The outcome of Purple Light Nights is to increase the awareness of domestic violence issues and it's affect upon children and families.

There will be a candle-light vigil April 16th at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall.  The Mayor of New Westminster will be issuing a proclamation at that time.  Strings of purple lights will be available for sale for $20.00.  If you have other purple lights you could put up yourself, that would also work!  We just want participation.
