Using Twitter to prevent domestic violence
Over the last several years, DELTA PREP, a national collaborative effort funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and CDC Foundation, has provided support to 19 domestic violence state coalitions to build capacity for primary prevention. This week, the effort is culminating with a National Prevention Symposium in Atlanta. DELTA PREP has been summarized in this project summary, which describes efforts from the 19 DELTA PREP grantees. Last December, PreventConnect released six podcasts from DELTA PREP. Below is an additional podcast describing efforts to prevent domestic violence.
Andrea Gleaves and Lynea Woody of the D.C. Coalition Against Domestic Violence speak about how they use Twitter to advance prevention efforts. Purple Thursday and a flash mob were among the activities that were advanced through social media. DCCADV is a part of DELTA PREP to support domestic violence coalitions to integrate primary prevention into their activities.
