Molloy College's Break the Silence Club raises awareness with "Wear Purple Day". October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and to help raise awareness about the issue the Molloy College Break the Silence Club will host its first-ever "wear purple day" on October 22. Everyone is encouraged to wear something purple to join the effort. The event is designed to raise awareness for the victims of relationship violence. Participants will have the opportunity to sign a "pledge" that will displayed in a central location on campus and purchase purple ribbons to wear. "Relationship and domestic violence issues often stay under the radar," said Break the Silence Club President Saniya Khan. "It is so important to break the silence in order for change to occur. Our hope is to paint campus purple to jump start some of these conversations and help spread the movement by providing information and creating general awareness within our community." The Break the Silence Club is a group designed to empower students as advocates and to develop awareness regarding the issue of relationship violence.
