Purple for Witness and Protest, Compassion and Courage

Plans are underway through the Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable, First Parish UU and other religious homes, and the LaurenDunneAstleyMemorialFund.org to witness, protest, and raise awareness about domestic violence in October by lighting up religious and civic buildings and homes in purple for awareness, courage and compassion. About 160 more girls and women and minority genders have been killed by their largely male partners in Massachusetts since Lauren Dunne Astley was killed in 2011. About 70,000 will die in our country in our life times at this rate with similar numbers of perpetrators lost to prison, 70,000 being about the same number as American soldiers who died in World War I. We can do better with caring and justice, and also save money. If you would like to purchase purple bulbs at cost of $5.00 each, please let Malcolm Astley know, and we will work out delivery. Please be on the look out for announcements about this year’s October march and vigil. You can reach him at malcolmastley@icloud.com
