End the Silence Campaign
This event is part of our 4th annual End The Silence campaign. A growing number of individuals, institutions, organizations, and businesses are pledging to End The Silence by engaging in a full month of events and activities designed to promote healthy relationships, end victim-blaming, and let victims and survivors know they are not alone.
Throughout October, YWCA Spokane will encourage our community to speak up, speak out, and visually show support against the devastating silence that surrounds intimate partner violence. Dually tied to this goal of supporting survivors is preventing the phenomenon altogether. This month, we encourage parents to have real conversations with their families about the reality of intimate partner violence in order to take away the stigma survivors carry, along with teaching children about healthy relationship practices. Community members and local businesses are asked identify themselves as allies for intimate partner violence victims through a series of easy ways they can join this movement and make a difference this October. Learn how you can help end the silence.
Special thanks to Sweet Frostings Blissful Bakeshop for partnering with YWCA Spokane to help #EndTheSilence in Spokane.
