Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2020

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). Roll up your sleeves and actively follow along, because We Have Work to Do #WHW2D!

Coping with the effects of a pandemic, struggling to dismantle systemic racism, and addressing natural disasters have brought longstanding inequities and injustices to the forefront across the globe. As an organization serving domestic violence victims and survivors, we have witnessed how these issues have compounded the trauma, barriers, and vulnerability of those affected by domestic violence. At WomenShelter, it has become abundantly clear that we have work to do as individuals, service providers, communities, and a nation. This year in recognition of DVAM, we invite you to begin or continue this work by participating in our interactive online We Have Work to Do #WHW2D 31-day calendar. We will definitely miss seeing you at our annual October event, but we are very excited about the opportunity to stay connected and raise awareness online.

We will focus on different topics each week in October and bring the voices of community members, advocates, leaders, and partners to the forefront of the conversation. Please see the instructions to learn how to get started:

  • Save the calendar as a friendly reminder to yourself about what is happening each day. We encourage you to share it with family, friends, and colleagues via email and on social media. Doing the work is not a job for one, but rather, a collective effort!
  • To learn more about each day's activity, use the interactive calendar below. This calendar will provide detailed information, instructions, and links. You will also find links that will allow you to easily download our calendar of events to your Google and iCal calendars.
  • We want to recognize the great work that you are doing all month long! So, share it with us by posting on social media, tagging us on Facebook and Instagram (@WomenShelterLB), and using the following hashtag in your captions: #WHW2D.
  • If you have questions regarding any information or activities on the calendar or our services, please send us an email at Info@WSLB.org.
