The “Find Your Light” campaign is a steadfast partnership between the Center for Prevention of Abuse and all men, women, and children in the Peoria Community. October is National Domestic Violence awareness month and Argent PR has a vision for all community members to “think purple” for prevention when they think about the month of October. The campaign aims to educate the public about all forms of abuse: verbal, physical, sexual, and mental as seen in the elderly, men, women, and children. The campaign title “Find Your Light” stems from the idea of discovering something you are passionate about to build your inner strength. Starting in October, Peoria-area businesses will be encouraged to pair with The Center for Prevention of abuse to aid the clients of the Center by presenting different types of creative outlets to be used for creating inner strength.

In addition to the local business participation, individual community members can take the pledge to help affected family members, friends, co-workers, or even acquaintances find their light. In doing so, community members will be asked to take a photo of themselves holding up a piece of paper that says “For my...” and will be asked to insert either a name or a generic term for whomever they are supporting in finding their inner light. A pledge event will be on November 9 from 10:00 a.m - 2:00 p.m. located at Hey Lola boutique, 933 Sheridan rd Peoria, IL. Individuals and families are encouraged to stop by the store and take a pledge photo.
