Purple Pulpit Sunday
was a HUGE Success!

Thank you to all who participated
on June 11, 2017



What an exciting time for our 1st annual Purple Pulpit! Faith communities are extremely valuable to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. The Alzheimer’s Association recognizes this critical role, and would like to thank the 28 congregations for taking time to bring the importance of brain awareness and education about Alzheimer’s to your communities. Through an united effort, we were able to reach nearly 8,500 people with this faith-based initiative.

The purpose of Purple Pulpit is to bring attention to the tremendous burden that Alzheimer’s and other Dementias are having on the African American community; to utilize the power and influence of the African American pulpit to bring awareness; to distribute the facts about Alzheimer’s; to encourage and support persons living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.
