Fall 2018 Newsletter: #1Thing for DVAM

Tuesday, 16 October 2018

This year's message for Domestic Violence Awareness Month expands on the Awareness + Action = Social Change campaign, which emphasizes the importance of “being part of the equation” to end domestic violence by engaging in proactive efforts to interrupt the cultural rules, norms, and constructs that support it. By encouraging people to do #1Thing, we acknowledge that everyone has a role to play, no matter how small, in our collective effort to transform our communities.

If we are able to show people how their “one thing” adds value to creating and sustaining healthy communities, we can accomplish the social change necessary to achieve a world that is peaceful, equitable, and just.

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter lifts up prevention initiatives that embrace the #1Thing framework by promoting simple strategies for incorporating change making into our daily lives. For examples of concrete action steps to advance social change, see the new infographic Awareness + Action = Social Change: What's Your #1Thing?
