Read books and articles, watch DVDs, and go to events to become more informed and connect with others engaged in the issue. Contact us for more information!
If you have a friend, family member, co-worker or neighbor who is experiencing domestic violence, share the SafeLink hotline number at 877-785-2020. SafeLink advocates are available 24/7 to provide information, safety planning, help and referrals to shelter and supportive services.
Does your job, gym, place of worship or school have information available about domestic violence? Check to see if you can supply our brochures or SafeLink resource cards there. SafeLink cards contain the hotline number and a description of the services the hotline provides. You can order materials, download brochures, cards, and posters directly from our site.
Domestic violence thrives in the shadows. You can help break the silence by speaking up against domestic violence and saying that abuse is never acceptable.
Does your company have a policy to help victims stay safe at work? If not, speak to your employer about creating one! Casa Myrna’s Education and Outreach Manager can help you get started. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule a training.
The media represents a powerful tool for raising awareness about domestic violence and shifting public attitudes. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper to let him/her know that you are concerned about this issue. Read news about Casa Myrna and domestic violence here.
Plan a benefit to raise awareness among your fellow students during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, V-Day and Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month in February, Take Back the Night in March, or any other month of your choosing. We will provide agency materials and, depending on availability, a staff member can offer a workshop on Domestic Violence 101 or a related topic. For more info, contact email@example.com.
