In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, ACAP wore purple and shared resources about domestic violence prevention with our families, customers, and community. Wearing the color purple is not only to demonstrate ACAP pride, it also reminds us why do the work we do every day. Taking a strong stand against domestic violence is one of these reasons.
