#1Thing is about moving people from awareness to action. It inspires thinking about how individuals can take small steps that leads to real social change.

The Domestic Violence Awareness Project has released the 2019 DVAM Readiness Checklist to help you to build collaborations and inspire action for social change in your community as you work to honor victims and support survivors throughout October and beyond.
"Transformation doesn’t happen in a linear way, at least not what we can always track. It happens in cycles, convergences, explosions.

“I do this work so that my daughter, granddaughter and millions of adults and children know that they deserve to thrive in a world that is filled with love and support rather than violence and abuse.” —Damien Frierson, Division of Family Violence Prevention Services
