October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. During the month of October we will be doing what we are calling "days of impact"; days of impact will fall on each Thursday during the month of October.

10th- Mayor's Proclamation & Balloon Release for survivors of DV, at Centennial Park 1-2pm. The community is welcome.

17th- North Platte Day of Healing, alternative therapy projects being opened up to the community, will be posted to our Facebook page for times and locations- therapies will include yoga, art, exercise. Time frame will vary.

24th- Wear purple day- purple is the color surrounding DV awareness month, we invite the community to wear purple with us in support of victims and survivors of DV.

31st- Light up Halloween. RDAP will be at the Platte River Mall handing out purple glow sticks for trick or treating from 5-7pm. We will have a booth set up.
