Fall Newsletter: #1Thing, One Movement for DVAM

Tuesday, 22 October 2019

For Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) this October, we are amplifying the Domestic Violence Awareness Project's call for collective action around this year's theme, #1Thing, One Movement, as we move forward together toward social transformation. The Domestic Violence Awareness Project is committed to promoting proactive efforts to shift the cultural rules, norms and constructs that support gender-based violence and support the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities, and institutions. In the words of VAWnet TA Question of the Month authors Micaela Rios Anguiano and Kelly Miller from the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence, we envision "beloved communities with social equity and collective liberation, where we see our own and each other’s full humanity, and everyone can thrive."

Preventing domestic violence requires the collective action and power of individuals, families, institutions, and systems – each whose #1Thing adds a valuable and powerful component to transforming our communities. Together, Awareness + Action = Social Change!

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter highlights resources that emphasize the importance of fostering collaboration in order to build beloved communities and a connected movement. This newsletter also features our newest DELTA FOCUS story from the Innovation section of the PreventIPV website, which explores the key role of policy-based prevention efforts. In alignment with the weekly topical themes NRCDV is highlighting for DVAM throughout October, we are featuring prevention tools related to:

  • Serving Male Survivors
  • The Intersection of Housing and Domestic Violence
  • The Integration of Awareness and Prevention 
  • Supporting Older Survivors
