This year, the Oahu DVAM planning committee has teamed up with neighbor island DV task forces to come up with a unified, state-wide theme for Domestic Violence Awareness Month! Theme suggestions were emailed to us and a Survey Monkey Survey has been created for various DVAM committees to vote on the theme they find most appealing.
Participating members have until August 14th to vote – a theme will be chosen on Monday August 15th.
The following themes were available to choose from:
“Domestic Violence IS our Business”
“Make Domestic Violence Your Business”
“We are Society-Make Domestic violence Your Business”
“Best practices in Community Based Response to DV: Intergenerational and Cross Cultural Perspectives.”
“STOP the Pain: Legacy for our Future Leaders.”
“ONE Community, ONE Culture, One Life.”
“Injury and Violence is 100% Preventable: It’s everybody’s KULEANA!”
“Injury and Violence Across the Lifespan.”
“Who can? You Can. Stop Domestic Violence”
To our community: which theme would you find most engaging?
“Who can? You can” is a slogan from a Kauai campaign targeting bystanders, for more information visit their website by clicking here!
