Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2019

This October, for Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), we are pleased to announce our campaign of Spark Hope Ignite a Movement! 

Historically and currently we are in a time when survivors are breaking their silence, they are breaking their isolation and demanding change. Collectively, we need a clear message about the impact of domestic violence on our communities.  

Let’s raise awareness this month and act:  
Believe survivors/victims.
Support healing & resilience.
Build community.
Show respect.
Encourage equality.
Advocate for equity.
Share peace.
Share power.
Change policies and systems.
Leverage your privilege.
Engage your community to Spark Hope Ignite a Movement

Are you planning community awareness events for DVAM? Please submit info about your events for us so we can signal-boost your great work.

Coalition member programs will receive posters and other campaign materials by mail in October (these resources will also be made available on this page shortly) . We will also be releasing 2 mailings throughout the month containing events happening throughout Oregon and additional resources for supporting survivors and educating communities.
