Agency-free

A different advocacy experience.

Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

Since we did not partner specifically with an agency in Lexington, we were the relevant resources. We advocated for the cause by volunteering not only our time, but our minds. We educated ourselves in order to educate others. There is a reason why NO MORE and other organizations provide information and tools for free - they want to spread the word. They know that people across the country are their allies and their resources, stepping out into communities with knowledge to share. We can all be leaders in this sense. By empowering individuals to join a cause, the need for funding is reduced and the ability to reach a wider audience is gained. Although working independently seemed daunting and lacking organization at first, the experience ended up being very valuable.

The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) is a membership and advocacy organization representing the 56 U.S. state and territorial domestic violence coalitions. NNEDV is the voice of these coalitions, their more than 2,000 local domestic violence member programs, and the millions of domestic violence survivors who turn to them for services. In 2000 and 2005, NNEDV members all across the country played a crucial role in the reauthorization of VAWA. Through its extensive state and grassroots network, NNEDV continues to mobilize a powerful constituency to make their voices heard in U.S. Congress.
Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

Domestic violence isn't an issue that effects a single population or individual in the same way. There are many ways that domestic violence can look,someone may be stalked, while the next person is experiencing both physical and sexual abuse. This is also an issue that effects various racial and cultural groups. The source provided in this link gives a fairly thorough breakdown of who is directly effected by this issue.

NISVS Infographic|National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey|Funded Programs|Violence Prevention|Injury Center|CDC | Domestic Violence | Scoop.it
Violence is a significant problem in the United States. From infants to the elderly, it affects people in all stages of life. In 1992, CDC established the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) as the lead federal organization for violence prevention. CDC is committed to stopping violence before it begins.
Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

The material on this infographic gives a holistic look at domestic violence as a social issue. The statistics surrounding this issue are quite alarming, for example, 20 people per minute are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner here in the U.S.. This information that the CDC published shows that domestic violence goes beyond effecting the victim and perpetrator, this is an issue that could possibly effect the entire family unit.

How we turned the tide on domestic violence (Ted Talk)

How we turned the tide on domestic violence (Ted Talk) | Domestic Violence | Scoop.it

When Esta Soler lobbied for a bill outlawing domestic violence in 1984, one politician called it the "Take the Fun Out of Marriage Act." "If only I had Twitter then," she mused. This sweeping, optimistic talk charts 30 years of tactics and technologies -- from the Polaroid camera to social media -- that led to a 64% drop in domestic violence in the U.S.

Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

Amazing Ted talk by Esta Soler who has watched how the awareness of domestic violence has changed. The rates are lowering and technology may have something to do with it. Either way Soler helped lobby for domestic violence legislation she was apart of getting The Violence against Women's Act passed.

Webinar: Bringing NO MORE to Your School - NOMORE.org | NO MORE is a new unifying symbol... | Domestic Violence | Scoop.it

Provides information, resources, and tools for students interested in raising awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault on their campuses or in their local communities.

Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

NO MORE is a symbol that is intended to raise awareness and ignite action to end domestic violence/sexual assault. Through one united symbol, every major domestic violence/sexual assault organization in the U.S. is behind this movement. They have 300 identified allies, and there are state coalitions as well. (in Kentucky, the Kentucky Domestic Violence Association and Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs). This is a webinar that anyone can view, but it is especially relevant for student efforts. The site also provides toolkits that are downloadable for activism in many environments/contexts.

Lexington Agency

Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

A major component of Greenhouse 17's service provision is community involvement. People can make monetary donations, donate goods, volunteer time, purchase their flowers/herbs/produce, and get out in the community to spread the word. In order to end intimate partner abuse, it is important to have your voice heard. For us, speaking with people on campus was a valuable way to increase awareness in our community.

This is a different way to advocate for domestic violence than the typical community events, passing out flyers, or wearing a ribbon. You can be a victim and still spread awareness by leading groups of individuals who are escaping a violent relationship.

Liz, Tajiana, Hope, Kristen's insight:

In order to seek change it is most important that not only the victims are heard, but that the population that is usually the one doing the domestic violence understand the effects of their actions. This group is just another way to do advocacy work to spread awareness.
