#GivingTuesday

giving-tuesday_2016

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy during a season when so many focus on receiving. It is another opportunity to “lift our community“.

The #GivingTuesday movement harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global movement dedicated to giving around the world.

October Happenings

Domestic Violence Awareness Month:

Once again, DVSAC joins domestic violence advocates throughout California to commemorate October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). DVAM evolved from the “Day of Unity” in October 1981 conceived by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became an entire week devoted to a range of activities conducted at the local, state, and national levels.

The activities conducted were as varied and diverse as the program sponsors but had common themes: mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, celebrating those who have survived, and connecting those who work to end violence.

In October 1987, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed. That same year marks the initiation of the first national domestic violence toll-free hotline. In 1989 the U.S. Congress passed Public Law 101-112 designating October of that year as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Such legislation has passed every year since with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence providing key leadership in this effort. Each year, the Day of Unity is celebrated the first Monday of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

During the month of October, DVSAC is partnering with various community agencies to help raise awareness through the Purple Ribbon Campaign. Look for tables around town with information on domestic violence and pick up a free purple ribbon to show support for someone you know and your stand against this issue. Take a look at some of the other activities going on.

Free Legal Clinic- October 6th

What is L.O.V.E.?- October 9th

Northridge Fundraiser- October 17th

Poetry Benefit- October 21st

 

Stay connected with DVSAC to find out what other types of events and campaigns will be going on in October for DVAM!
