City hall hue highlights domestic violence
Honolulu Hale will be bathed in purple floodlights through Saturday in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, according to city officials.
Mayor Kirk Caldwell ordered the purple illumination last week for the Domestic Violence Awareness campaign, which began as a “Day of Unity” in October 1981. The goals are to mourn those who have died because of domestic violence while celebrating those who have survived and connecting with those who work to end such abuse.
