Have you seen these signs around San Francisco? They are part of San Francisco’s “Peace at Home” campaign. It is a year-long public awareness campaign geared towards raising awareness of domestic violence and heightening the public’s knowledge about services for DV survivors. The campaign began in January with a press conference in which anti-domestic violence advocates unfurled a flag and artwork with images, words, and symbols from the 24 anti-domestic violence agencies funded by the City. The campaign now continues through ads in English, Spanish, and Chinese on high-traffic MUNI and walking routes throughout San Francisco. The ads feature a diverse array of survivors and a message that reads “Domestic Violence is a crime, and no one deserves to be abused. You have options. San Francisco Responds 24 Hours A Day.” Printed cards bearing the artwork and hotline numbers in multiple languages will be distributed to schools, libraries, and recreation centers as well.
