The Purple Ribbon Project

This past October, we debuted The Purple Ribbon Project in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The project involved a station for students and staff to decorate or choose a purple ribbon to tie onto a tree branch. Each purple ribbon represented a student or staff's support for survivors of domestic violence. 

Along with the ribbons, we created accompanying lawn signs that showcased domestic violence statistics and Grace Smith House resources. The signs were then displayed amongst the campus. 

We hosted the project at both Bard College and Dutchess Community College.
