1. Purple Hair: We Care campaign with Salons all month

C4DP is partnering with hair salons around the county to help raise awareness to prevent domestic violence. Salon professionals are in a unique position to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse in their clients and co-workers. C4DP hopes to raise awareness and support salons to connect their clients to C4DP for help. As part of the campaign, we are encouraging them/you to streak your hair purple for a day, a week, or a month to offer an opening for dialogue about the issue and our work. Share photos and comments on our Facebook and Twitter.
