Planning for DVAM

Want to help with DVAM? Connect with your local organization to see how you can help with their local campaign. Click here for a map of domestic violence organizations in California. Click here to learn about StrongHearts Native Helpline, which serves Native and Indigenous survivors.

Do you need help planning your DVAM campaign? We can help provide tools and resources, be a sounding board for your ideas, brainstorm a campaign tailored to your community’s needs, and strengthen your current plans. Technical assistance is free to Partnership members and their staff. Interested? Please contact Jessica Merrill at

Sample DVAM 2022 Proclamation template

A great way to raise awareness is to pass a DVAM resolution in your community. It’s a chance to teach local leaders about the prevalence of domestic violence, and give them an opportunity to speak out about it. We’ve written out a sample proclamation that contains instructions. Never done it before? Email us and we’d love to help!
