Billboard & Radio Campaign asks Community Not to Turn Away From Family Violence

Tubman Family Alliance has launched a metro-wide public service campaign to engage community members in the effort to stop family violence.  Clear Channel Communications and Go East donated more than $200,000 worth of advertising, radio spots, and design services to help Tubman spread the message that family members, co-workers, neighbors, and friends need to speak out when someone they know is in a violent relationship.

Over 100 billboards throughout the Twin Cities will feature close-up photographs of people looking directly at passersby with the message “Don’t Look Away.”

On January 1, 2002, Family Violence Network of Lake Elmo, Minnesota, and Harriet Tubman Center of Minneapolis consolidated to become Tubman Family Alliance, a single new agency serving the broader Twin Cities metropolitan community. 

The joining of these two organizations was based on significant compatibility in many service offerings, populations served, and budgets, as well as complimentary geographic service area. More importantly both organizations shared similar visions to serve individuals in crisis and to act as an agent of social change to work toward the eradication of violence in the greater community. 

Thanks to the strong histories of both merging entities, Tubman Family Alliance has an extensive network of partnerships with both public and private nonprofit agencies and institutions. In addition, it has referral relationships with scores of governmental and nonprofit agencies, law enforcement agencies, legal service providers, crisis lines, landlords, employers, educational providers, health care organizations, churches, cultural groups and others who refer individuals to Tubman Family Alliance or who provide services and counsel to participants.
