With a sign and message, Arizona aims to STOP domestic violence

Stop Domestic Violence

By Steve Elliott / ADOT Communications

Stop signs made by ADOT don't normally come in purple, and their message is normally limited to "STOP."

This week, however, the sign above produced by ADOT is helping Governor Doug Ducey call attention to the problem of domestic violence. Tonight, the governor is lighting the State Capitol dome purple, the color of domestic violence awareness.

For more information on this effort, please visit the website, which also is featured in the graphic below. And please consider joining the social media campaign against domestic violence by following @LightAZPurple on Twitter.
