Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Do 1#Thing to create change and inspire others to do the same.

Location: NA

Domestic violence impacts millions of people each year, but it can be prevented. #1Thing is about moving people from awareness to action. It inspires thinking about how we, as individuals, can take small steps that leads to real change. The Awareness + Action = Social Change campaign idea demonstrates that to accomplish real social transformation, we must incorporate concrete action steps that we all can take. Everyone plays a role in creating the world we want to live in and when each commit to doing just one thing, the collective power of our actions can create real social transformation. Change can start small with just #1ThingThink about the #1Thing #UnaCosa you will do this month (and throughout the year) to inspire change. Here are some ways you can show your commitment to ending dating and domestic violence (D/DV) in our community:

  • Wear a purple ribbon or sticker and tell others why you are wearing it.
