October is Domestic Violence Awareness and Action Month, and our theme for October 2021 was Love in Our Community. We recognize that systems of power, privilege, and violence create the environment for gender-based violence to thrive. But love in all of its many forms – care, service, activism, education, outreach, and much more – can counteract and dismantle these systems.
In the spirit of this theme, we tabled at area farmers markets to request art inspired by our DVAM theme of Love in Our Community. At the Fremont, U District, and Shoreline markets, we tabled with a variety of fun art supplies and blank postcards for people to draw on.
