"A local shelter will pay tribute to victims of domestic violence this week. 

Oct. 21 marks Purple Thursday. It's a national day of action when everyone is encouraged to wear purple to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Staff at Shade Tree will pay tribute to victims by holding a candlelight vigil Thursday at 5:30 p.m. It will be at the shelter's outdoor basketball court, 1 West Owens Ave., 89030.

The organization is designed to provide a safe space for women and children in crisis here in the Valley.

The National Coalition of Domestic Violence says 44% of women and 33% of men in Nevada experience some form of domestic violence in their lifetime."(FOX5)
