A&M-Commerce to Switch Blue and Gold for Purple Next Week to Bring Awareness to Domestic Violence

The Department of Victim’s Advocacy and Support at Texas A&M University-Commerce is encouraging the university community to wear purple on Oct. 14 to raise awareness of Domestic Violence. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in America, and the community is invited to swap out their blue and gold attire on this upcoming Blue and Gold Wednesday for purple as a symbol of survivors and those who lost their lives due to domestic violence. In addition, select locations on campus will be lit up purple for the occasion. People are asked to share their purple looks on Facebook on Oct. 14 and tag @TAMUCAdvocacy in their photos.
