PIERCE COUNTY COMMISSION AGAINT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

"The Pierce County Commission Against Domestic Violence (the Commission) was established by Pierce County Council Ordinance in 1994 to create a coordinated community plan focusing efforts primarily on intimate partner violence and sexual assault. The Commission consists of 49 individual and agency member positions along with a variety of community partners and allies.

Intimate partner violence is a serious problem in Pierce County as well as nationally. The region's populous urban areas, island and mountain communities, military bases, tribal lands, and rural areas present a challenge in developing an effective, coordinated response to intimate partner violence.'

h.o.p.e. Sunday

Nov 13, 2016 we joined forces with Artists 4 Life in the Sound to promote our work throughout an evening shared with  5 musical artists who performed between presentations.  Leading up to the event we also interviewed with radio stations like Radio Tacoma, and are currently in the post-production process of converting the music and presentations of the evening into a media-ready package useful for the promotion of the work of H.O.P.E., and also for raising awareness about Domestic Violence throughout the communities of our city.

THE 2017 h.O.P.E. CLASSIC

@ ART ON THE AVE

Art on the Ave is arguably Tacoma's largest, district-sponsored event, and this year Artists 4 Life in the Sound partnered to bring an incredible depth of participation together to promote H.O.P.E. and ensure our work was recognized by community organizations, local businesses and an audience of thousands of visitors to one of our state's most active neighborhoods.


Our partnership is an ongoing testament to the power of collaboration to bring greater awareness of pressing social issues affecting our cities and communities to those that are able to affect positive change, while also providing resources of help adequate to the needs of those affected by these issues.
