DVAM Week of Action

Monday, October 18, 2021Sunday, October 24, 2021

Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) 2021 is here! This year’s campaign theme, #Every1KnowsSome1, strives to highlight how common domestic violence is and that it is more than physical violence. Join our Week of Action October 18-24, 2021 to engage advocates, partners, and the public in starting a national conversation—and check out our toolkit here.

Here’s a quick rundown for what you can expect so that you can plan ahead:

Media Monday (10/18): Share a piece of media on your own social channels that bring awareness to domestic violence
Twitter Chat Tuesday (10/19): Join us throughout the day Tuesday as we answer questions on Twitter. More information coming soon!
Do Work Wednesday (10/20): What does “do work” mean? Well, we all have a role to play in ending domestic violence. Today, donate to support our work. Share and follow your local program’s social accounts. Look into volunteering at your local program.
Purple Thursday (10/21): It’s our favorite day of #DVAM: #PurpleThursday! We’re wearing purple today to show our support for survivors and our commitment to ending violence. Get the Purple Thursday printables, frames, and more in our toolkit.
Philanthropy Friday (10/22): Survivors and programs urgently need financial support. Make your gift and make a difference.
Speak Up Saturday (10/23): Policy and advocacy are key to our work to end domestic violence, and we need your voice to make a difference. Sign up to receive action alerts from local and national organizations.
Sharing Sunday (10/24): Domestic violence can happen to anyone, and it’s likely happening to someone close to you. Today is a perfect day to share resources.
