Hawaii State Coalition Against Domestic Violence

# NoRoomForViolence Campaign

The Hawai’i State Coalition Against Domestic Violence proudly announces the No Room For Violence campaign for this year’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

No Room For Violence is our invitation to the community to take a stand against violence in their relationships, homes, and communities across Hawaiʻi. Domestic violence was once considered a private matter. As survivors, advocates, and allies in the movement, we understand that domestic violence is a public health emergency liken to the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 has disrupted almost every aspect of our lives. But, even more so has exposed vast inequalities and barriers to accessing help and safety for women and children facing violence at home.

Join the conversation by following and using our campaign hashtag #NoRoom4Violence across all major social media platforms. 

Join the Campaign!
