Evolving out of the Day of Unity, October has become Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the United States.

As a result there are a number of White Ribbon Campaign's being launched this month. For a list of activities, or for information on how to get involved, please check out Family Violence Prevention Fund and Resources for Sexual Assault Awareness.

Read the official proclamation from the White House here.

If you are starting a campaign this month we would love to hear about it. Please send us an email at info@whiteribbon.ca or check out our website for more information on how to get involved.

Do you want to participate in a internet music video?
I am creating a song called "give the secret a voice" theme of the song is about abuse against woman- domestic violence, drugs, alchol... I am looking for content to accompany the song- This is part of a social awareness campaign to STOP abuse, and your contribution could help make a difference in a woman's life.
Send me either a pic, or SHORT video shot (from your digital camera) depicting the affect of abuse, in the shot hold up a sign indicating if you are a victim or abuser.
I would appreciate it if you pass this along to anyone you think would be WILLING to participate.

Deadline for the content is Sunday November11th
send your info to: thesongcatcher@gmail.com

Thanks for your contributions, and giving the secret a voice,
