The Purple Ribbon Breakfast is an annual event to raise public awareness of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and stalking, and to fund ATV's 22-bed shelter in Loveland. The ATV staff provides round-the-clock assistance for those who are trying to break free of the abuse.

ATV is now accepting corporate and private sponsorships of $1,000 per table for the Purple Ribbon Breakfast. This sponsorship entitles you to breakfast, eight seats at your table to fill with your guests, recognition at the event and six months of free publicity on our website. We appreciate all your support!  

About our Featured Speaker:
Diann Kissell overcame a childhood of unspeakable abuse and a headline making family tragedy to become a messenger of hope. Diann triumphed over trauma by ultimately refusing to remain a victim. Through her healing journey, Diann found her voice. In speaking out, she shatters a legacy of shame, secrecy, and silence.  Diann’s memoir, A Turquoise Life – One Woman’s Journey from Trauma to Triumph, is a testament to the resiliency of the human spirit. By telling this color rich story, Diann honors her healing. 

Today, Diann symbolizes her color of well being by living a turquoise life. She has come full circle and is now telling her story to the world. Diann is a celebrated speaker, enjoying her current role as the subject of her inspirational story. Since the mid-1980s audiences of all types have been the recipient of this dynamic story.

Denim Day is held annually on the last Wednesday of April.

This day was created as a prevention and education campaign to bring awareness to one victim's experience. A 1999, court ruling convicting a man of sexual assault was overruled by a Supreme Court stating that "the woman was wearing jeans and they could not have come off without her help". Denim Day was created to honor and support that victim and many others, like this woman, who have experienced victim blaming. All day Alternatives to Violence, we will be wearing jeans and "denim day" pins and we encourage the community to do the same at their schools and places of work. By participating, we hope to send the message that we support victims of violent crimes and the many people who work in the field of victim services. Stop by ATV for a Denim Day pin and/or share our upcoming events through your organizations, Facebook and people who care. For further information contact Brittany ~ Sexual Assault Therapist @ 669.5150

All of October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels.
