Universal Prayer: A Moment of Silence
Five advocates share their call for unity and hope.
The #DVAM2020 Universal Prayer responds to the challenges that survivors, advocates and communities are facing during these challenging and uncertain times.  We pray for a daring hope.
“…This year has tested us in ways both anticipated and unforeseen. Collectively and individually, we are raw, bare. But we cannot go back…” 
The written text of the Universal Prayer, created by Phoebe Jones, is available through the #1Thing campaign page on the Domestic Violence Awareness Project website.
Featuring: Farzana Safiullah, Jacqueline Miller, Micaela Rios Anguiano, Mildred Muhammad, and Morgan Dewey.
Your #1Thing Doesn't End on October 31st
As #DVAM2020 comes to a close, NRCDV would like to thank everyone for the high level of advocacy and engagement throughout the month. On behalf of NRCDV’s Domestic Violence Awareness Project Advisory Group, thank you for your never-ending commitment to strengthening and transforming efforts to end domestic violence, during DVAM, and beyond. Awareness + Action = Social Change doesn’t stop with the end of DVAM.
No Survivor Justice without Racial Justice. 

We also thank you for continuing to creatively include #1Thing in your own personal and organizational messaging. Change can start with only #1Thing. One person’s actions may seem insignificant, but together a communities’ collective “#1Things” can lead to real social transformation.
