Join us for our annual Candlelight Vigil to honor victims of domestic violence and celebrate the voices of survivors, and Take A Stand To Make A Difference with our inaugural Purple Tie Awards highlighting men who work to support domestic violence survivors and who work toward the elimination of violence against women and families in Glendale.

Domestic Violence, sexual assault, and stalking are not just women’s issues, they are community issues and gender equality cannot be achieved without the involvement of men and boys. We have more work to further engage men in our work it’s a critical to our work in changing attitudes and beliefs that promote violence against women. Thank you for being a part of our efforts to create positive change.
