October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and We Want to Hear About Your Event

Sep 24, 2010

As in years past, the Family Violence Prevention Fund will publish a dedicated issue of Speaking Up on Domestic Violence Awareness Month activities. Speaking Up will provide examples of effective public awareness and advocacy events – news conferences, proclamation signings, candlelight vigils, galas, marches and more.

We are updating our sample activities list, and want to hear from you! Has your organization organized a successful Awareness Month event? Can it be replicated by others? Would you be willing to share your experiences with other Speaking Up readers?

If so, please email Speaking Up editor Luci Manning. Include an event description, details on planning, and how long it took to organize. Also list your name, your organization and phone number (we will include contact information so readers can contact you for details). Thank you!
