The Purple Reign Campaign Continues
Last month I wrote about the kick off of the Purple Reign Campaign, an undertaking by Seattle Rain City Superhero Movement member Purple Reign. The campaign focuses on raising awareness about domestic violence with a fundraising effort to benefit the charity group Northwest Family Life.
The Campaign held a "Everyday Heroes Against Domestic Abuse Comic Contest" which was judged by Purple's husband, Phoenix Jones. Jones, according to his Facebook page, just intervened in an escalating fight involving someone with a knife- they held one of the men until police arrived.
A winner to the contest was announced as Luke Molver of Durban, South Africa. You can see the winning entry HERE.
Next up for the campaign: The Healing Reign Music Benefit and Auction which will feature performances by Quickie and Ghost Town Riot as well as a silent auction May 12. More info HERE.
(PS- You can here me tell an overview of an incident I encountered with Phoenix Jones on The Moth's website here: themoth.org/tell-a-story/listen-and-vote)
