Of their participation in the campaign, as a result of partnering with the county’s Department of Family Service during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Melissa Norris, Marketing Manager for the Capital Wheel at National Harbor said, “The Capital Wheel at National Harbor is proud to partner with “Purple Light Nights®” in their efforts to raise a unified voice against domestic violence.”
"The commitment of our partners at Family Services and their support of “Purple Light Nights®” made lighting the Capital Wheel at National Harbor possible,” said Sheriff Melvin C. High. “With the support of partners at every level of government, we’ve sent a powerful message about our community working together to make change.”
The Office of the Sheriff launched “Purple Light Nights®” in Maryland in 2014, connecting Prince George’s County and the state with a list of cities and counties in over 30 states, and in Canada and 18 villages in Guam. The Purple Light Nights name and logo are approved Federal trademarks of the Covington Domestic Violence Task Force.
