An annual day of awareness about the rights of children and youth to safety and well-being.
All Ontarians are encouraged to Dress Purple on this annual day of awareness about the rights of children and youth to safety and well-being, and the responsibility of adults and community services to help children, youth, and families who need support. On Ontario Dress Purple Day, we join together with our key partners, Boards of Education, schools, and child care centres and homes, to share this positive message that help is available and to celebrate the community that cares for kids and families.
Check out the big Hamilton sign in front of City Hall; it will be lit purple on October 24. And if you do dress purple, take a picture and post it to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #IBREAKthesilence, and be sure to tag us @hamiltonccas.
