Purple light bulbs will be provided to guests at the lighting ceremony and at Domestic Violence Intervention Division (DVID) events during the month. “Thanks to our Presenting Sponsor Pepco, we have light bulbs to support our municipalities, college and university, and church partners who joined our effort this year to bathe the county in Purple,” said Sheriff High. “We’re simply asking our friends and neighbors to shine a purple light on their porch or in their window during all the nights of October.”
“My vision keeps growing. I see more municipalities lighting their city halls and police stations, and I see more communities bathed in light, not only in Prince George’s County, but all over Maryland,” said Sheriff High.
Look for an updated list of domestic violence- related events every week during the month of October given by the Sheriff’s Domestic Violence Intervention Division and other partners.
