#1Thing Action Guide: Action Through a Unified Message

Wednesday, 12 September 2018

Domestic violence impacts millions of people each year, but it can be prevented. It 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 Domestic Violence Awareness Project (DVAP) is excited to bring a unified message to #DVAM2018 that moves people from awareness to action and inspires thinking about how individuals can take small steps that lead to real social change.

Change can start with only #1Thing. One person’s actions may seem insignificant, but together a communities' collective “#1Things” can lead to real social transformation.

The #1Thing theme offers the opportunity for individuals and organizations to gather around a national unified message for DVAM and beyond. Throughout the month of October, the DVAP and its collaborative partners will be sharing personal and organizational #1Thing messages that advance action for social change. We invite you to participate by sharing what #1Thing inspires you.
