Welcome to our Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) email series! Once a week throughout October, we’ll send resources and information on how you can raise awareness about domestic violence. We hope you learn something new and you’re empowered to take action!
WEEK 1: 31 MOMENTS THAT MAKE A MOVEMENT
This DVAM we celebrate “31 Moments that Make a Movement.” We will share moments that have built the movement to end domestic violence.
October 1: Our movement is built on moments big and small. Housing is central to our advocacy because we believe that housing is safety. Securing safe, affordable housing is a crucial step on the path to long-term security. We are working toward making the statement “Every home a safe home” a reality. Learn more.
October 2: NNEDV’s members – U.S. state and territory coalitions -- are critical to advancing the movement to end domestic violence. Since our inception, NNEDV has enhanced the capacity of coalitions and the roles they play with local domestic violence programs, allied organizations and policy makers. Learn more.
October 3: Today, we celebrate our history in the movement to end domestic violence. NNEDV was formed in 1990 when a small group of domestic violence victim advocates came together to promote federal legislation related to domestic violence. Learn more about our story.
October 4: Every home should be a safe home, and every member of every family should be able to live in peace and safety – including our furry friends. October 4 is #WorldAnimalDay, and we want to acknowledge that options for survivors and their pets is an important. Learn more about pets & domestic violence.
