Where We Started:
Our initial stories focused on public awareness of domestic violence…
Take Act!on Maine Campaign
The Take Act!on Maine campaign informs, educates and inspires action to end domestic violence in Maine. As one of the largest public awareness campaigns about domestic violence ever done in the state, the campaign’s goals are to advise the public about how to utilize the helplines, and to engage men in becoming part of the solution.
In Its First Year – Since February of 2017 – The Take Act!on Maine campaign has increased calls to the Statewide Helpline by more than 35%.
On September 23, 2017 the Take Act!on Maine campaign in conjunction with WGME-TV of Portland was honored with the First Place Creative Award for Public Service – Sponsored TV at the annual Maine Association of Broadcasters (MAB) News and Creative Awards.
