Domestic Violence Awareness on CCC Campus

November 23rd, 2015 Posted in College News & Events
Criminal Justice students were actively bringing domestic violence awareness to the CCC Auburn campus during the month of October.  Beginning with a kick-off campaign of Pinwheels, the campus community joined the CJ Department in placing about 1,500 purple pinwheels on the front lawn of the Auburn campus for a spectacular display.

Throughout October students handed out flyers, posted signs, and engaged in activities with outside community partners. They sold purple pins, bracelets, pens, and other many goodies to support Domestic Violence Awareness.  Criminal Justice Assoc. Professor Teri Misiaszek, the Criminal Justice Coordinator said, “All of the proceeds went to the Cayuga/Seneca County Action Agency for domestic violence programs.”

The annual state wide “Wear Purple Day,” was held on October 21st.  The CJ students have dubbed the campaign “Get Your Purple On!” Both the Auburn and Fulton campuses dawned their purple in support of the campaign.
