Preventing domestic violence
A Peacemaking Project by TeamA L.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is why our team decided to come up against this type of abuse.
Our Compassionate Solution:
To solve this injustice of Violence
we will address The domestic abusive climate
by Scaling up prevention programs

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.
If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.
If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for an Accelerator, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can support your project in any way! :)

The deadline to submit your Project Plan and Mini-Grant Application is March 31st if you want to remain eligible to apply to attend a Peace First Accelerator.
As you craft your plan, be sure to consider the feedback we gave you on your compassionate insight, and check out our project planning tools for help turning your insight into a concrete action plan: https://www.peacefirst.org/plan-your-project
Then, through your dashboard you can make any changes you want to make to your "compassionate insight," record your plan in "Make a plan" and then "Apply for a mini-grant" for the materials you need.
Let us know if you have questions. We're looking forward to supporting your project!

Thanks again so much for posting this project.
As part of the Peace First project-making process, we give formal feedback on your compassionate insight. Once your insight is all set, then you can move forward with your mini-grant application if you need funds to help move your idea into action!
I want to give you feedback on your insight:
"To solve this injustice of
we will address
The domestic abusive climate
Scaling up prevention programs"
I think it is fantastic that you have decided to address such an important issue. Violence and domestic violence are such big issues that providing more detail on the angle you plan to take and the particular part of the injustice that you want to address could really help us and others understand how to better support you. It will be really important to spend more time thinking about that before moving forward with a plan.
I invite you to download our toolkit to go through that process. You can get it from here: https://www.peacefirst.org/resource/peacemaker-manual
I really look forward to seeing how this idea continues to shape.
