Build connection in your community to talk about relationships

Staying connected is one of the most helpful things you can do to support someone who is experiencing abuse and to build resilient communities. When we get together to have open and honest conversations about relationships, we can help move our communities closer to safe, joyful relationships for everyone. Here are some ideas that you can use to stay connected.

Use our DVAM Social Media Toolkit

We know that staying connected is important – now more than ever! So this year, we are focusing on our communities taking action by promoting lessons from the English and Spanish Friends and Family Guides. These digital materials are sized for Instagram posts, Instagram and Facebook Stories, and Cover Photos for you to use across all of your social media platforms!
