DVAM 2022: #Every1KnowsSome1

October 1, 2022

Every October, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) joins with our partners, supporters, and allies across the country to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM).

In partnership with the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV), we have created a unified #Every1KnowsSome1 DVAM messaging campaign and a nationwide cause-based #GiveForDV giving coalition for Giving Tuesday. The goal of these two joint initiatives is to raise awareness, increase donations and volunteer efforts, and deepen community engagement by connecting our work nationwide. Coalitions and DV programs are critical to building GiveForDV into a larger movement to mobilize charitable support for domestic and sexual violence programs at the local, state, territorial, and national level. 

Here’s how you can get involved in the coming weeks and months:

Register your organization online. NEW this year! DVAM and GiveForDV have their own GiveGab website where you can access and download toolkit elements, provide a platform for supporters to donate, and more. Please sign up to be a participating program with GiveGab even if you do not plan to collect donations there. We want to show up, together, on the same day, in the same place—that uplifts all of our work and magnifies our impact more than we can do on our own.

Use the toolkit. We hope you will join us in this campaign by incorporating some of the provided messaging, including social media posts and graphics, emails, press releases, and more. You may use as much or as little of the provided content as you would like, and you are welcome to add your own logos or information to content as you see fit. Don’t miss our Week of Action (October 17-23, 2022)!

By uniting our efforts through the same hashtags and simple messaging, through GiveForDV and during DVAM, it builds the case that Every1 has a part to play in supporting our work to end domestic violence… on Giving Tuesday and every day throughout the year. We can’t wait for you to join us!
