Awareness + Action = Social Change: Strategies to End Gender-Based Violence

General Material

Published Date
August, 2017

For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we refer to the equation “Awareness + Action = Social Change” as a call to communities to be an active part of ending gender-based violence. This message introduces a prevention component to our efforts for October and beyond, emphasizing that to accomplish real social transformation, we must incorporate concrete action steps that individuals, families, communities, and institutions can take to promote safe, healthy, and thriving environments for all. The Awareness + Action = Social Change Infographic introduces this formula to end gender-based violence, offering key illustrations and talking points to communicate this message to a wide range of audiences.
