“Don't Wait” Domestic Violence Campaign Begins in New Haven

A domestic violence awareness campaign will begin in New Haven's city hall Tuesday before moving statewide.

Survivors and advocates from the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence and New Haven Mayor Toni Harp will be there to inform the public about common risk factors for domestic violence, encourage victims to use the domestic abuse hotline and to broaden public understanding.

As part of the "Don't Wait" campaign, people are encouraged to wear purple to show commitment to preventing domestic violence on what is known as Purple Tie Tuesday.

The campaign launches at noon as part of an effort to prevent domestic violence in Connecticut.
