People are always asking us about domestic violence awareness ribbons. Every cause has a ribbon these days. Purple is the color for domestic violence awareness ribbons.

Once upon a time this was a simple piece of fabric ribbon folded into a loop and secured with either a straight or safety pin. Now, the awareness ribbons come in all sorts of materials from magnetic ones that can go on your car to jewelry. The popular Purple Silicone Bracelets that can be purchased in bulk to be used in a variety of ways. Of course, the simple fabric ribbon is still popular too.

The material it is made from is less important the cause that the domestic violence awareness ribbon represents.

When you wear a purple domestic violence awareness ribbon you are making a statement. You are telling the world that you won’t stand for relationship abuse in any form. As people ask what the ribbon represents you are given the opportunity to educate and inform. Most importantly you are helping survivors feel supported.
