Inspiring Change: Planning for Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Indian Country
Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is nationally recognized annually in October. Preparation for DVAM often includes domestic violence programs and communities hosting intentional, motivational events and activities to inspire change to end violence against, and uplift women and other survivors of domestic violence. In preparation for DVAM 2022, NIWRC is creating space to have an initial discussion about the Herstory of DVAM, centering on grassroots advocacy and indigenous women’s and other survivors’ voices and expertise, followed by key planning steps and strategies, ideas, and resources to help programs and communities plan for their own DVAM events and campaigns.
Time is allotted for conversation and questions and answers. Please join us and bring your questions, expertise, and ideas!
