4th Annual National Call of Unity

To kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2013, this free national call connected hundreds of advocates, allies, survivors, and their family and friends to energize and refocus our efforts to end domestic violence and sexual assault.


  1. Held on Tuesday, October 1st at 3pm Eastern/12pm Pacific, this call featured words of gratitude and encouragement from our partners in the federal government and national advocacy organizations, words of hope and strength from a survivor of domestic violence, and words of inspiration and passion from performance poets -- all in celebration of the work we do together to say NO MORE and envision a world of peace.
