This Private Violence Impact Story was created by filmmakers Cynthia Hill and Un Kyong Ho as part of the Fledgling Engagement Lab. It is a shareable visual story about how the film impacted different segments of the community working to end domestic violence.
Changing the Conversation Around Domestic Violence. Supporting a Movement.
The goal of the
Private Violence impact campaign is to make women and children safer in their own homes by empowering a cultural shift in how we think and act around domestic violence and by encouraging collective responsibility. We want to shift the conversation from a private story to a public story. From a story of personal response to a story of community-based response. From a victim blaming culture to a culture that raises consciousness. From an issue marred by stereotypes and shaming to an issue recognized by courage and support. From a “women’s issue” to an issue that integrates men and encourages male accountability and support. From a culture that asks, “why doesn’t she just leave?” to a culture that says, “you are not alone; there is help for you, your children and him.” To find out more about our film’s impact story, click on the blue dots along the map.
“Fledgling supported our interactive media impact working group which has led to a wonderful community of thought leaders, academics, creators and activists learning more about the impact space for interactive storytelling. It is gratifying to work with an organization so thoughtful and forward-thinking in their work – their commitment to the field is evident in everything they do and working with them taught me a great deal about how to be a better funder.”
