CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — October will be an important month for the Purple Door.
It's National Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.
Today, they launched observance with a discussion on the role men can play in the fight against domestic violence.
“We realize as a community this is not just a woman's issue, it's not an issue that women need to take care of,” said Dwayne Hargis, a member of the board for Purple Door. “This is an issue that we need more involved at.”
The Purple Door will conduct presentations at local schools over the next month.
They are also launching a podcast on Oct. 11.
