DVAM Campaign: #1Thing

Launched during a July 25 webinar #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. Developed by the Domestic Violence Awareness Project’s (DVAP) Advisory Group, the #1Thing theme offers the opportunity for individuals and organizations to gather around a national unified message for DVAM and beyond. Throughout the month of October, NRCDV and its collaborative partners will be sharing personal and organizational #1Thing messages that advance action for social change. We encourage all to incorporate the #1Thing message into their own awareness and action campaigns by utilizing the tips and tools outlined in the #1Thing Action Guide.
