What Is Wrapped In Courage

As a means to educate the community and elected officials about violence against women and the need for increased services, the Ontario Association of Interval & Transition Houses launched the Wrapped in Courage Campaign in 2013. 

The campaign engages local communities throughout November with the support of gender-based violence services to build awareness, connect survivors to services and to call on decision makers about the social change that is needed. 

Every year throughout the month of November we call on all Ontarians to take action to show their support for survivors of gender-based violence by wearing a purple scarf and attending a Wrapped in Courage flag raising and proclamation event in your community. Take action towards violence prevention today, because #purpleisforeveryone.
