Developing Social Media Campaigns for Domestic Violence Awareness Month is a Technical Assistance (TA) Guidance package designed to support community-based domestic violence agencies and coalitions.

The document outlines seven key steps for developing thoughtful and engaging social media campaigns: 1) identifying potential partners, 2) determining campaign goals, 3) defining intended audience, 4) developing key messaging, 5) setting communications strategy, 6) implementing action plan, and 7) evaluating impact. Concrete tips, strategies, and planning tools are offered for each step of the process.

Additional resources include a podcast Engaging Your Audience through Social Media and a supplement that lists a range of tools and resources.
