Free Yourself Global: Healing Families; Ending Domestic Violence

"Free Yourself: Healing Families; Ending Domestic Violence”, is the first interactive global domestic violence campaign incorporating three core elements:

  1. A convergent media campaign including: social media, short film, feature length film, photo book, web and podcast series and music benefit concerts hosted by 10 cities around the world.
  2. Largest story curating exercise of its kind: recording of stories from recovered abusers, victims and specialists working in the field including NGO’s, psychologists, law enforcers and policy makers to name a few
  3. Interactive digital platform: using cognitive technology to extract data from primary research, we can assess by geo-location the strengths and weaknesses in each region, mapped against a best practice roadmap. This will assist policy makers and support services world-wide to improve both preventative and services. This platform will also include a hot button for victims to more easily access support close to them.

This campaign explores the enculturation of violence through families over generations, and how does one, whether the abuser or the abused, interrupt the pattern of violence? This for-profit campaign will contribute over half the proceeds directly to our affiliate organizations combating this pandemic and supporting victims and recovering abusers. We also aim to connect these groups to share resources, tools, ideas, and collaborate. Currently organizations from over 68 countries around the world have officiated their support of Free Yourself.

More importantly, this initiative hopes to bring together all of the voices of the participants of domestic violence, including recovering abusers, victims, children, educators, support agencies and health professionals, law enforcement agencies, politicians, celebrities and social entrepreneurs who work to aid in this cause. It is in this aim that "Free Yourself" inspires us. When all stakeholders come together in a grass roots forum, we strengthen our ability to understand, address, and end the cycle of domestic abuse.

Funded by a combination of private equity funding and corporate sponsorship, this campaign is an example of social entrepreneurship in action.
