Alternatives to Violence hosts Purple Ribbon Breakfast

LOVELAND — Alternatives to Violence will host its Annual Purple Ribbon Breakfast on Tuesday, April 25. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to providing shelter, advocacy, education and resources for people impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking.

The event serves to raise awareness about these issues, as well as raise funds for ATV’s SafeHouse, programs and operations. The Purple Ribbon Breakfast will feature special guest speakers from the area. Included on the agenda are Angela Rae Clark, human-trafficking survivor and author, and Vicky Paul-Bryant, domestic violence advocate and survivor, and co-founder of Pastels on 5th. 

“We hope attendees leave the event inspired to take action and foster a community-wide response to help victims of abuse,” Kari Clark, executive director of Alternatives to Violence, said in a written statement. “This event is an opportunity to address an important issue that often remains not talked about, but talking about it is an important step in building community support and showing victims that help is accessible and available.”
