Wednesday, October 11, 2017 is Health Cares About Domestic Violence Day (HCADV)Futures without Violence (aka FUTURES), a nonprofit benefit corporation, sponsors this awareness-raising day “to reach members of the healthcare and advocacy communities to offer education about the critical importance of universal education to promote healthy relationships, address the health impact of abuse and offer warm referrals to domestic violence advocates.” FUTURES has put together an Action Kit with resources and some suggestions on what these communities can do on HCADV Day:

  • Hanging posters in waiting rooms that advertise local resource numbers
  • Writing a newsletter article or an op ed for a local paper
  • Committing to try routine screening for one week
  • Inviting a speaker to conduct a lunchtime presentation for staff
