Join Us Tomorrow for the #YourVoiceCounts Twitter Chat
Our friends at the Verizon Foundation recently launched a new campaign called Your Voice Counts. The campaign is helping to break the silence around the issue of domestic violence by equipping bystanders?especially men?with tools to begin speaking up to prevent and end domestic violence.
In an effort to keep the conversation going and to highlight the great work and resources of organizations working to end domestic violence, we'd like to invite you and your network to join the "Your Voice Counts Live Twitter Chat" tomorrow, Thursday, November 15, from 3:00 ? 3:30 pm ET.
Hosted by the Verizon Foundation (@VerizonGiving), and Your Voice Counts partners including Joyful Heart (@TheJHF), our Founder and President, Mariska Hargitay (@Mariska), A CALL TO MEN (@LiveRespect), CBS Sportscaster James Brown (@JBSportscaster) and NO MORE (@NOMOREorg), this chat will give participants an opportunity to discuss how and when they can use their voices to end domestic violence, ask questions about prevention and get information.
Joining is simple
Just log on to Twitter (www.twitter.com) on November 15 at 3:00 pm ET. Search for the hashtag #YourVoiceCounts to follow the conversation and add the hashtag to your own tweets to join in the conversation.
@VerizonGiving and the partners will re-tweet your answers and comments. For more information on speaking up against domestic violence, please visit the Verizon Foundation website. And of course, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates. This Twitter chat is designed as an open forum for participants to come together, ask questions and share information about how to speak up against domestic violence. To read about protecting your personal information and safety on Twitter, we invite you to visit: support.twitter.com/articles/18368-safety-private-information#. If you suspect domestic violence (or any other crime) is happening, don't think of it as a "private matter" or simply "none of your business." Use your voice to connect someone to life-saving resources like the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233). Verizon Wireless customers can simply dial #HOPE to be connected to the Hotline. If you're in immediate danger or you believe someone else is, please call 911.
