Purple Matters is an A.Bevy Collegiate Group initiative that gives our members the responsibility to challenge both themselves & the community to embrace & uplift DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS.
1 in every 4 individuals are affected by domestic violence and every 9 seconds in the U.S. a woman is abused. As we continuously face challenges & changes - especially in our young adult years - it’s important that we let others know that they are not alone.
Watch Casey Ariel’s documentary, Pieces of Me, & if you are a survivor - share your story so that it may help others - & if you are one of the “1 in every 4” - don’t be afraid to ask for help.
THE NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE
By igniting an increase of self-awareness, through our mission we provide young adults with hope for a better future, courage to pursue their dreams, and the realization of their purpose.
"A.Bevy was founded in 2009 off of the crux of my grandfather's passing. In that time I questioned life. I questioned purpose. I questioned God. However, in my deepest pit of depression, I realized that life isn't about what we have while we're here - but more so about what we leave when we're gone. In that moment, I knew I had to give back. I had to tell my story - and A.Bevy was the avenue I created just for that. Since sitting in that little Swedish apartment, it's amazing to see how far a little idea has become. Glad to say, this is still only the beginning." - Bryant Kirk White, Founder & Executive Director
Years Pushing Purpose
"Not once have I ever doubted that A.Bevy was my purpose since it came into my life. It's only right that I share that feeling with others & let them know that finding something in life that you love is truly possible."
"I knew I wanted to give, but I initially didn't know how. I did know that no matter who it is - no one was going to say no to money though! Scholarships were the initial base of all we stood upon - happy to say, that hasn't changed."
"It's almost surreal to know that something that I sat up one night and created is impacting so many lives. It's truly a blessing that i don't take for granted. These members - students - young adults come first. I promise to give my all to them through this organization, as I hope that through this organization - we can awaken all they have to give within themselves."
Change, progression, growth are our Three Pillars - and standing by that mantra, there is no growth without change! Here's a few ways on how you can be the catalyst behind the outreach of our mission.
