October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
What does Awareness + Action = Social Change mean?
Awareness - noun
Knowledge or perception of a situation or fact
The fact or process of doing something, typically to achieve an aim
We can't expect things to change in our community if there is no awareness and action done to stop these traumatic events. The more we talk about what happens in our community, the more it spreads statewide what we and many others do the sooner we will see the social change that will affect so many lives. We have been working hard within our community with numerous community members, agencies, and establishments and we hope with the help of them and others we will begin to see a change.
Calendar of events:
The calendar above is a list of numerous events we will be doing in the community and surrounding areas. With all of these events sparks the #1Thing, one thing such as wearing purple to show a survivor you believe them, one action such as finding the geocache and getting some swag brings awareness to River City Domestic Violence Center and one supporter to listen without judgement to a friend who is going through a tough time. Any of these can be the difference between someone seeking help and knowing we are here to believe and support them or feeling like they are alone. A huge part of the battle to end Domestic Violence is to show survivors they do have the resources to make a change their lives.
