October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the City of Mountlake Terrace will be participating in its tenth Purple Light Nights Campaign.

Purple Light Nights™ began in Covington, Washington in 2007 and has grown nationally and globally. The goal of the campaign is to remember the victims who have lost their lives, to show support for the countless survivors of violence, and to provide hope for those who are still living with abuse.

Purple light bulbs (black lights) are provided to residents of the community with the intent that they be displayed during October to bring awareness of domestic violence and its continued impact on our community.

If you have a purple light, please display it throughout the month. If you would like a purple light for your home, please contact Domestic Violence Coordinator Danielle Singson at the Mountlake Terrace Police Department at (425) 744-6257 or dsingson@ci.mlt.wa.us. There is a limited supply of purple lights available at no cost.
