Doing What's Needed
One step toward ending domestic violence is understanding what it is. At ICAN!, our board and staff are committed to increasing public knowledge of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and dating violence within the ICAN service areas. ICAN!'s 2020-2021 educational offerings and efforts include:
Designing posters for domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking using current statistics and resources. Our advocates distribute posters at least one week in advance of the start of each designated month.
Creating social media calendars reflecting designated months for our Facebook and Instagram pages. Scheduling posts for Facebook and posts to Instagram following the social media calendar.
Writing news releases about each designated month. Circulating email articles to all area media with additional contact information.
Contacting radio stations via email to ask for PSA time.
ICAN! brochures are available in Spanish. The brochures are printed and distributed by our bilingual advocate to various locations.
Each ICAN! staff member attends (via webinar on in person) 20 hours of training per year.
The Executive Director represents ICAN! at all Oklahoma Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault meetings and gatherings.
