Purple Light Nights® is the inspiration of the Covington Domestic Violence Task Force,
The goal is to have all residents shine a purple light on every front porch; hang a string of purple lights in every business window; and decorate each downtown street tree with purple lights, to send the message that “Domestic Violence Has NO Place In Our Community”.
The outcome of Purple Light Nights® is to increase the awareness of domestic violence issues and it’s affect upon children and families and provide education on building healthy relationships.

“The Purple Light Nights" Campaign is a terrific way to bring attention to the devastating impact that domestic violence has on families and children. I want to encourage every citizen of our state to take a few minutes this October to affix a purple light to their home or workplace – to shine more light on the need to stop domestic violence.” Washington state Attorney General Rob McKenna
“From my own personal life experience and my experience as a law enforcement officer, I know the far-reaching effects of domestic violence on a family and in a community. Domestic violence is a problem that must continually be addressed and one of the key ways to reduce its impact is for members of the community to take action. I hope everyone takes time to participate in “Purple Light Nights” by hanging a purple light, promoting the campaign with a sign, or simply getting involved. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of so many.” Congressman Dave Reichert
