Domestic violence impacts millions of people each year, but it can be prevented. Preventing domestic violence requires the collective voice and power of individuals, families, institutions, and systems – each whose “one thing” adds a valuable and powerful component to transforming our communities.

The #1Thing message helps individuals and communities to articulate and understand how our collective “one things” can lead to the social transformation we all desire to see. Imagine if 7.4 billion individuals each commit to doing just one thing – this collective action would create real social transformation. Change can start with only #1Thing.

​​​​

The #1Thing Action Guide includes templates, recommendations, strategies, and tools for incorporating this message into your public awareness activities and campaigns during DVAM, and beyond. It also provides links to resources available on the Domestic Violence Awareness Project website. These tools and resources were developed to support your efforts to spread the word in your community. Available in English and Spanish.
