Day of Action Against Domestic Violence

About the Day

We are encouraging women and men who support them to come together on October 5th and plan a special event in their community to take action against domestic violence.  As part of that event we ask for a "Die In" of two minutes of silence with as many women who are capable to lie on the ground.


To kick off National Domestic Awareness Month in 2019, a National Day of Action is scheduled for October 5, 2019.  Communities can create events around the issue of Domestic Violence.  In the event will be a visual demonstration of the shocking number of women’s deaths due to domestic violence in the United States.


We are asking for a staged "Die In."  Watch our video to see an example done in three sites.


This event is about increasing public awareness of domestic violence and taking action to support and bring more legislation and resources to end this national scourge. 


Participating communities will be asked to film the event, especially the "Die-In." Clips from the films will be collected by Healing Voices – Personal Stories, a non-profit film company which makes award winning documentaries to raise awareness of domestic violence. Healing Voices-Personal Stories will edit the footage into a documentary, adding still photos, voice-overs, and informational text. Healing Voices – Personal Stories will then seek out wide channels of distribution for the documentary to further drive home the point that something must be done to stop the unseen war of domestic violence.
