This week Riverside, CA declared itself a Purple City! Their Task Force is excited to make their city Dementia Friendly and raise awareness throughout their community. Surrounding communities are preparing to join them soon.
Seminole, FL is poised to become a Purple City, having begun to put together a training program and their Task Force is also excited to begin the process. We are so very proud to see this movement spreading, We have been contacted by several groups preparing to join us. Purple Cities Alliance has made all our materials available to any group wishing to join us. There is never any fees for using our educational materials, or our logo which was designed to be adapted to other cities.
We also learned this week, that our friend and founder of the Purple Angel Global Campaign, Norrms MacNamara has announced his retirement following the world wide Rock Against Dementia Concerts on March 19,2016. So now we have a new goal! Let's put together concerts in our Purple Cities and our soon to be Purple Cities. It can be local Music Groups or big name artists if you can get them but let's all do something to raise awareness and honor our friend Norm!
We have so many opportunities to raise awareness and grow our Purple Cities Alliance. Let's do this!
