For DVAM Challenge 12, print this handout of domestic violence statistics and post it wherever you think it may help someone.
This week’s theme is “Take a Stand!” To inspire you to make a commitment to ending violence, here are some ideas from organizations, companies and communities participating in DVAM.
Understand your importance as a friend. What you say and do can really make a difference in someone’s story. If a loved one confides in you that they are experiencing abuse, believe them and be there for them.
Watching someone you love experience domestic violence can be very disheartening. If the person you care for is not reacting the way that you want them to — for example, leaving the situation – it’s easy to become frustrated.
Helping a friend or family member who is in an abusive relationship can be challenging. If you have noticed that your loved one’s relationship is unhealthy, remember that they need your support.
This week during DVAM we will be focusing on the role that the support system plays for a survivor or victim of domestic violence.
Over 500 people shared our photo from Challenge Four on Facebook! The DVAM Challenge is off to a great start.
We have to remove the stigma around domestic violence. Many statistics show that 1 in 4 women will be abused in their lifetime. Despite this high number, abuse is still a taboo subject.
How much do you know about domestic violence? Take our quiz below as your DVAM challenge.
This week, we’ll be focusing on how information is a powerful tool for survivors, victims and advocates alike. By knowing more about domestic violence, we’ll be able to identify it when we see it and we’ll know what options are available for those involved.
Today welcomed October, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, as a chance for everyone – victims, survivors, advocates, law enforcement, supporters and political leaders – to unite in our work to end abuse.
