Domestic Violence Awareness Campaign Overview


Building Futures leads both the City of Alameda Domestic Violence Task Force and City of San Leandro Domestic Violence Task Force. Each year, the task forces sponsor public awareness campaigns in February (Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month) and October (Domestic Violence Awareness Month). 

  • Watch for our 25’ Boulevard banner across East 14th Street in San Leandro and Park Street in Alameda.
  • On October 4th, Alameda Mayor Trish Spencer will present the City’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month proclamation at the 7 pm City Council Meeting.
  • On October 8th from 10 am to 1 pm, the San Leandro and Alameda Domestic Violence Task Forces will host a “Bathroom Campaign” volunteer activity. Volunteers will work in groups of two to approach local businesses and other public places to post an informative poster for those who might need help. Alameda Campaign contact is Jessica Rogers (jrogers@bfwc.org). San Leandro Campaign contact is Lorie Curtis (lcurtis@bfwc.org). Pls. contact if you can help.
  • October 28th, Building Futures will participate in the Alameda County Family Justice Center’s annual Day of Remembrance for Domestic Violence victims who have died as a result of intimate partner violence.
