In an effort to destigmatize domestic violence, and as a reflection of our mission to amplify the voices of domestic violence survivors, NCADV has implemented the #SurvivorSpeaks hashtag.
#MeToo has shown us that cultural and social change is obtainable when the conversation is made accessible to all who are affected by sexual violence. Our hope is that #SurvivorSpeaks will empower survivors to come forward with strength and share stories that need to be told bringing awareness to this issues that impacts millions of women, men, and children.
For Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), NCADV is highlighting the #SurvivorSpeaks hashtag. Download our toolkit for resources, including shareable graphics, sample social messaging, and tools to share your passion.
