#ThisIsDV Campaign

Physical violence is just one of many tactics used to hurt, intimidate, frighten, and ultimately control an intimate partner, but our systems are designed to respond specifically to cases involving physical assault, or to treat these cases as more legitimate or dire than others.

Recognizing domestic violence is critical if we are to take action to address and prevent it.

The NRCDV’s #ThisIsDV campaign elevates the voices of survivors to help validate and name their experiences and raise awareness about the multifaceted nature of domestic violence.

#WhyICare Twitter Chat

This movement – our movement to end domestic violence – is rooted in social justice and fueled by passion. Survivors, advocates, and allies are all working together, driven by a common goal but inspired by our unique experiences and worldviews. Some are new to this work, others have dedicated a lifetime, but all of us bring value to advancing and shaping our mission; defining and redefining what social change looks like and how we can achieve it together. This October, for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the NRCDV is asking: What does the movement mean to you?
