COVINGTON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ...

Covington DVTF

The Covington Domestic Violence Task Force promotes a strong message that "Domestic Violence Has No Place in Our Community" through collaborative leadership, communication, education, and victim support services.

Our goals are to 1) Raise awareness of domestic violence and how it affects the community as a whole;  2) Provide financial assistance and service referrals to victims and their families;  3) work to support policies that meet victim needs and hold perpetrators accountable.  

To reach these goals the task force has been an active force in not only our community but internationally with the creation of the Purple Light Nights awareness campaign which was launched over 10 years ago.  Purple Light Nights goal is to have all residents shine a purple light on every front porch; all businesses to hang a string of purple lights in their window; and cities to light the dowtown or street trees in purple for the month of October during National Domestic Violence Action Month.  The purpose of the light is to remember those who lost their lives to domestic abuse; support those who survived domestic abuse; and provide hope for those still living with abuse.  This campaign is now held in cities and counties in 34 states and in Canada and Guam.  SHINE A LIGHT - SAVE A LIFE.

On September 30th we will host the 8th annual Purple Light Nights Tree Lighting event to include the annual TAKE A STEP AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 5K WALK for individuals, families of all ages, and groups!  Show your support to victims and help break the cycle of domestic violence by registering a team!  Can't participate in the walk - then please consider a donation to help us reach our goal.
