Break the Silence on Domestic Violence

Event Details

Now in our second year, Nova Vita is honoured to host our Break The Silence On Domestic Violence Peer-to-Peer Campaign as part of Women Abuse Prevention Month. Beginning November 1st, make a difference for Nova Vita by signing up to participate, and raising essential funding and awareness to help those impacted by violence in our community.

For many women, living in violence is also living in silence. They feel trapped, they experience increased isolation, they do not feel safe in their own home, and they often feel alone and voiceless. The global pandemic has intensified this. We have seen an increase in the number of women who have stayed in their homes, experiencing increased isolation, and for those that were able to come to our emergency shelter for safety, we have witnessed an increase in the threshold of abuse and in their need for our support.

We need your help. Make a difference by joining the campaign, and raise essential funds, raise awareness, and raise your voice to help break the silence on domestic violence.

  • For the month of November, we challenge you to share your commitment to the fundraising campaign and to share our social media posts (@NovaVitaBrant).
  • On November 24, go silent. Pick a start time that works with your life schedule and then turn off your voice. There are still plenty of ways to communicate – prerecord messages, text, write, sign, use a white board; be creative and be mindful.
  • On November 25, join us as we break the silence on domestic violence in honour of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and begin our 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

For more information, or to make arrangements to have your individual or team campaign covered on social media, please contact Jessica Powless [email protected].
