Mountlake Terrace participating in Purple Light Nights Campaign for domestic violence awareness

During the month of October — Domestic Violence Awareness Month — the City of Mountlake Terrace is participating in its 12th Purple Light Nights Campaign. The goal of the campaign is to remember the victims who have lost their lives to domestic violence, show support for the countless survivors of violence, provide hope for those who are still living with abuse and increase the awareness of domestic violence issues and its affect upon children and families.

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, you are asked to display it throughout the month. If you would like a purple light for your home, 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.
