Glendale, CA –YWCA Glendale and the Glendale Commission on the Status of Women presents the Candlelight Vigil and Purple Tie Awards for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Candlelight Vigil honors those who have lost their lives to domestic violence, while the inaugural Purple Tie Awards highlight men in the community who work to support domestic violence survivors and who work toward the elimination of violence against women and families in Glendale. YWCA Glendale recognizes that domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking are not just women’s issues, but rather they are community issues that must be addressed with the involvement of men and boys.
