This October, the Domestic Violence Awareness Project of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence seeks to foster healthy communities by encouraging all of us to be part of the equation Awareness + Action = Social Change. This concept originated from the Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance, Training, and Resource Center (TC-TAT), providing leadership in prevention since 1997.
Awareness + Action = Social Change is a framework that offers an opportunity to engage in critical conversations about what Action looks like. Information about upcoming events and our #DVAM2015 image campaign are highlighted below!
Join us for this year’s series of events exploring prevention in action!
