Purple Nails and Conversations
For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the MAP stakeholder team, DFTA, WellCare, DJNU and the PAL Center worked together to host an event entitled: Purple Nails & Conversations. The event was hosted on October 24, Go Purple Day, at the Polo Grounds’ PAL Center. The event was requested via survey response from a previous training. The stakeholder team connected with partners from WellCare, a city-wide medical insurance company who provided a DJ and massages for the event.
A four-hour event encouraged residents to share their thoughts on what they believe to be healthy or unhealthy behaviors in intimate partner relationships and also provided participants with purple nail polish, food, massages, music, and giveaways. Residents had candid conversations about healthy and unhealthy relationships, we connected with not only new partners, but also with new residents, as the event was a long one and hosted during the daytime.
