On International Women’s Day In 2013, the Amal Center for Women launched its Purple Bow Tie Campaign to promote acts of love and goodness towards women.

We are taking a preventative approach to combating domestic violence by launching a campaign aimed to encourage boys and men to embody ideals of dignity, kindness and respect in their relationships with their sisters, wives, mothers and daughters. We hope to create awareness about domestic violence through this initiative.

To promote this campaign, Amal center representatives have and will attend several community events to invite participants to wear our purple bow ties and display their support to the cause.

We encourage you to share this initiative with friends, family and colleagues in the hopes that it inspires them to further tighten their bond with the women in their lives.
