2015 Donor Newsletter V.1
Child & Family Service recently participated as a core member of the new statewide initiative, Hawai‘i Says NO MORE. Along with more than a dozen Hawai‘i leading government and non-profit organizations, CFS helped to raise visibility, create awareness, encourage conversation, and break the social stigma surrounding domestic violence and sexual assault.
In Hawai‘i, 50,000 women are victims of domestic violence each year. On average, over 500 victims seek support from domestic violence shelters every day. Domestic violence is a problem that disproportionately affects women but there are male victims as well.
Participation in the “Hawai‘i Says NO MORE Week” was highly visible during the initiative’s launch in March. Honolulu Hale and Howard Hughes Corporation’s redeveloped IBM Building showed support by evening lightings with the signature blue color of NO MORE. Statewide, supporters were encouraged to download the Hawai‘i Says NO MORE Challenge sign from the website, write why they are saying NO MORE to domestic violence and sexual assault, and upload a “selfie” with their sign to their social media with the hashtag #HawaiiSaysNOMORE.
