Capital Campaign Progress

 

 The Uncomfortable Campaign brings attention to Domestic Violence in a way that may make you feel…uncomfortable.  That was the goal. In efforts to raise awareness which leads to grass roots efforts and conversation, our hope was to open a door of communication on a topic that is most often not talked about.  The campaign consists of several media elements including the cornerstone,  a television commercial which sets the stage for a seemingly put together women mentions the abuse by her husband to a group of friends over dinner. Conversation quiets and the viewer is left with an uncomfortable feeling of uneasiness. The idea that the abuse could be happening next door, down the street or in one of your friends or family members homes doesn’t seem likely but 1 in 4 women will be a victim of sexual assault. Oklahoma is now ranked 3rd in the nation for number of women killed by men. It is important now more than ever to spark conversation surrounding domestic violence.

 The YWCA Oklahoma City would also like to extend our greatest appreciation to Saxum as they brought this campaign to fruition with their incredibly talented team. To see the complete campaign please click here.
