Office of the Arizona Governor Doug Ducey
Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family


Your continued commitment to stand with victims and survivors of domestic violence.

October is recognized Domestic Violence Awareness Month. On October 2nd, 2018, Governor Doug Ducey lit the State Capitol purple as a symbol of Arizona's dedication to end domestic violence.

“This is an issue that affects all ages, races, religions, socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. I encourage Arizonans to stand with me as we send the unwavering message that domestic violence can stop.”

- Governor Doug Ducey

You can also join the statewide campaign by purchasing a purple lightbulb from any Home Depot location across Arizona and taking a picture of your home, business, or place of worship lit purple and posting the image to social media using #LightingAZPurple. A percentage of all purchases will go to support domestic violence prevention programs and awareness messaging.
