All across the United States, schools and communities are going purple to support The Herren Project’s (THP) Purple Initiative Week. THP’s Project Purple Initiative week is a nationwide celebration where communities and schools across the country GO Purple! to help support the mission of THP’s Project Purple Initiative.
