NRCDV is proud to offer " My One Thing," a new 4 part mini series for Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2018. Each week in October will feature the unique perspectives of advocates, survivors, and other community members who have been impacted by or are working to end gender-based violence. In connection with our #1Thing messaging campaign, we will offer stories on the value of each individual action and the invaluable role we all play in creating the world we wish to live in.
Our first episode in the series features two storytellers who reflect on the vital role that support people play in their lives. Anamaria & Colleen share personal stories about the #1Thing that changed their story as survivors.
In Episode 2, NRCDV Radio's first ever Spanish language podcast episode, advocate Madeline shares the story of how she found her "north," her inspiration to continue the challenging work of advocacy, even in the face of obstacles.
In Episode 3, storytellers explore how each and every one of us can support the resilience and healthy development of children in our families and communities. The Office on Women and Domestic and Sexual Violence Services in Fairfax, Virginia discusses the impact of exposure to domestic violence on children. Advocate and parent Aly shares how she teaches her son about gender equity and healthy relationships.
Episode 4 explores culture and community connection as a source of resilience and strength for women of color. Rupkatha, Renonda, and Cyrena each provide insight into the ways in which their communities can be agents of change.
