Join the #VoicesHavePower Campaign

Jul 30, 2014

voiceshavepower campaignAt loveisrespect, we work to inspire and support young people to build healthy relationships. Dating violence affects millions of people every year, but people are still afraid to talk about it.

You can start the conversation and bring to hope to survivors by participating in the #VoicesHavePower campaign from Verizon HopeLine now through August 8th.

Help us send over 100,000 messages of hope, love and support to survivors of domestic violence and dating abuse. For every message that contains the hashtag #VoicesHavePower, is submitted through the website or is texted to #94079, Verizon will donate $3 towards preventing domestic violence.

Survivors need to hear from you. Let them know they’re not alone. Get on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to send your message of hope. Remember to use #VoicesHavePower in your message when you reach out.

Not sure what to say to survivors? Here are some examples of actual messages sent to survivors:

  • I want you to know that I care about your sufferings, and I understand your pain. And I know you will survive this. #voiceshavepower
  • You deserve someone who loves you the right way, someone who respects you and trusts you. #voiceshavepower
  • Because there is always someone out there to listen. #VoicesHavePower

Everyone deserves a healthy relationship. #VoicesHavePower.

That’s our message for survivors of domestic violence, dating abuse, sexual assault and stalking. What will yours be? Time is running out -- send your message of hope now!
