SAFE Shelter Center for Domestic Violence Ties Ribbons Around Forsyth Park Live Oaks

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Thursday, October 1, SAFE Shelter Center for Domestic Violence Services kicked off Domestic Violence Awareness Month by tying purple ribbons around the Live Oak trees in Forsyth Park.

“Our shelter has been tying these ribbons for about 18 years now,” said Cheryl Branch, executive director. “We wanted to do something very visual to remind people purple is the color for domestic violence and we wanted victims to feel like they hadn’t been forgotten.”

The National Network to End Domestic Violence encourages citizens to wear purple, which is the color of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. The ribbons will remain in Forsyth Park until the end of October.
