About the campaign
The Take Act!on Maine campaign is a community effort that informs, educates and inspires action To end domestic violence in Maine. As one of (if not the) largest public awareness campaigns about domestic violence ever done in the state, Take Action Maine’s goals are to educate the public with concrete steps about how to utilize the helplines/services, and to engage men in becoming part of the solution. In its first year, since February of 2017, the campaign has increased calls to the statewide helpline by 64%.
The campaign’s strategic partner and content expert is The Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence (MCEDV), who mobilizes collaborative community action with and on behalf of a statewide network of Domestic Violence Resource Centers to ensure that all people affected by domestic abuse and violence in Maine are restored to safety and that perpetrators are held accountable. Business sponsors are First National Bank, Day’s Jewelers and Hardy, Wolf and Downing.
