In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2023, the Bertha Harris Women’s Center and Institutional Equity #Title IX Compliance invites you to participate in Wear Purple Day on Thursday, Oct. 19.  Wear purple to raise awareness about domestic violence. Show your support for those who have experienced domestic violence and abuse, and let them know that help is available. 

Remember, if you are experiencing domestic or intimate partner violence, you are not alone. If you need immediate help, call 800.621.HOPE for the New York City Domestic Violence Hotline, or call 311 and ask for the Domestic Violence Hotline. If you are in immediate danger, call 911. On the CSI campus, you will find support and assistance at the Bertha Harris Women’s Center (Building 2N, Room 106), in the Title IX office (, and from Public Safety (7189822111).  

Any questions?  Contact the Bertha Harris Women’s Center in 2N, 106 or 718.982.2871.
