SUNY Plaza Goes Purple

The SUNY Plaza building in downtown Albany has gone purple for the entire month of October, as part of the NYS Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (OPDV) “Shine the Light on Domestic Violence” campaign.

OPDV Executive Director Amy Barasch said, “OPDV wants to thank the State University of New York for their continuing support of the “Shine the Light on Domestic Violence” campaign. It is so important, when 32 percent of college students report dating violence by a previous partner, and 21 percent report violence by a current partner, that educators join in these efforts. The purple illumination of the glorious D&H building in downtown Albany will serve as a true beacon for everyone.”
