    The 8th Annual Purple for Peace is a luncheon that promotes family violence prevention in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October). The event will be held Thursday, October 5, 2017, at the Hilton Jackson Hotel, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. The theme for this year’s luncheon is “Power Lines: Channeling Faith and Hope to Victims of Domestic Violence.” In every faith, religious leaders and spiritual teachers are some of the first responders to victims of domestic violence. After the event, we will roll out our training calendar for religious leaders, to make sure they’re equipped to provide their spiritual bodies with accurate information and relevant resources.

     

    The Purple Peace Prize honoree is Governor Phil Bryant, whose entire career has included advocacy for victims of domestic violence. In keeping with the event’s theme of “Power Lines: Channeling Faith and Hope to Victims of Domestic Violence,” the Coalition will recognize community members whose efforts have worked to move the needle on perceptions of domestic violence and to give domestic violence survivors hope for a violence-free future. These honorees are Bishop James Swanson, Sr.Attorney Gail Thompson, and John “Pat” Brown, publisher of The Magee Courier and Simpson County News.

    Because MCADV is not able to come to every domestic violence event in October, we wanted to bring awareness to YOU! “Myth Busting: A Day in the Life of a Domestic Violence Victim” will help you or your organization understand the dynamics of domestic violence, including the different forms of abuse and why some victims don’t “just leave,” and what you can do to help victims of domestic violence.

    Come hear from our dynamic speaker, Lavon Morris-Grant. After surviving being shot in the head by her husband, who then turned the gun on himself, Grant has spent the last 15 years of her life traveling the globe in order to educate people about the causes, effects and recovery from domestically violence situations. Her book, Whom Shall I Fear: A Spiritual Journey of a Battered Woman, is a “powerful story of how women find ways to rebuild their lives and reclaim their dreams.”
