On October 27, 2022, as part of Ontario Dress Purple Day, Valoris and the community of Prescott-Russell will proudly display the colour purple to raise awareness about the rights of children and youth to safety and well-being.
This is an opportunity for everyone to advocate for the safety and well-being of children and youth in the region as well as an opportunity to celebrate the community that cares for children and families in Ontario. This day is meant to highlight the importance of breaking the silence and speaking out if we see that the right to safety of children around us is being compromised. It is also an important opportunity to remind children and youth that help is available in Prescott-Russell.
Everyone Can Take Part!
Valoris invites the Prescott-Russell community to take action on Dress Purple Day by:
- Proudly wearing purple clothing and accessories on October 27.
- Posting a picture on social media, using the hashtag #IDressPurpleBecause.
- Using the Facebook filter, promotional tools, posters, and resources available on the Ontario Association of Children's Aid Societies' website: http://www.oacas.org/dresspurpleday/.
