Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) was launched nationwide in October 1987 as a way to connect and unite individuals and organizations working on domestic violence issues while raising awareness for those issues.

Operation Care is taking a stand against domestic violence and reminding our community that there are still countless people–victims and survivors, their children and families, their friends and family, their communities–impacted by domestic violence. #takeastand #WeAreResilient

 


Throughout the month, Operation Care is providing various businesses throughout the county DVAM boxes to gain support in “Taking a Stand”. Help support healthy relationships by wearing purple bracelets, pins and ribbons during the month of October.

It’s simple!

 


“A person cannot abuse the men, women, and children in our community and think that we will turn away. We WILL take a stand, and we encourage survivors to tell their stories so that together we can stop the abuse. We cannot lose another life because of domestic violence. As a community we must ALL TAKE A STAND.”

#SurvivorSpeaks

In an effort to de-stigmatize domestic violence, and to amplify the voices of domestic violence survivors, The National Council Against Domestic Violence (NCADV.org) has implemented the #SurvivorSpeaks hashtag.
In response, Operation Care will be publishing domestic violence statistics and encouraging survivors to use #SurvivorSpeaks in their social media posts to come forward with strength and share stories that need to be told, thus bringing awareness to this important issue that impacts millions of women, men, and children nationally. The #SurvivorSpeaks campaign encourages all of us to take a stand, and not stop until society has zero tolerance for domestic violence and until all victims and survivors can be heard!
