PIRC is going purple on all of our social media accounts and on the PIRCBlog for the month of October to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). Join us by putting a purple filter on your social media pictures and by using the hashtag #DVAM2016! We will also participate in the National Network to End Domestic Violence’s (NNEDV) #31n31 social media campaign by sharing pictures of our own PIRC members and PIRC friends on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts holding signs with one thing that they will do and/or will continue to do for DVAM! Expect a month of DVAM-themed PIRCBlog posts from our colleagues from the National Domestic Violence Hotline, Casa de Esperanza, FUTURES Without Violence, and our own PIRC members!
PIRC Executive Director of Research Sharyn Potter and Executive Director of Practice Jane Stapleton stated, “Throughout October, we join our colleagues across the country in remembering survivors of domestic violence. Here at Prevention Innovations, we pledge to redouble our efforts to prevent domestic and gender-based violence. We invite everyone to visit our social media pages throughout Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October and to get involved! Contact your campus crisis center, your state domestic violence coalition or your local domestic violence program for more on what you can do during DVAM.”
