Domestic Violence Awareness: Do Ask. Do Tell. Do Something.

For many of the student groups we work with across the country, the calendar of events for October is overflowing with activities to raise awareness about breast cancer, body image, diversity, and violence in your communities.

To take action for Domestic Violence Awareness month, many activists partner with local organizations and shelters that support survivors through fundraisers, clothing and cell phone drives, and endless volunteer hours.

Poet, graphic designer, feminist (and dear friend) Marcus Amaker created this powerful flyer for My Sister's House, a Charleston shelter for victims of domestic violence. If you are in the Charleston area on October 23, check out their event, "Do Ask. Do Tell. Do Something'" to raise awareness about domestic violence and support the programs of My Sister's House.

Wherever you are, find a way to speak up and fight back against violence in your community. Become a hotline volunteer, attend your local Take Back the Night rally, find out about your campus sexual assault policy. Whatever you do: DO ASK, DO TELL, DO SOMETHING!
