Utah 1 in 3: Stories of Domestic Violence
In order to raise awareness of the fact that domestic and intimate partner violence impacts the lives of thousands of Utahns each year, and that help is available to those who need it, the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition presents an evening of storytelling hosted by Giuliana Serena of The Bee.
This special event will provide our community an opportunity to see and hear from survivors themselves. Storytelling is one of the most effective means we have to relate to and learn from one another, and these particular stories will encourage us to think critically and take action, while offering a significant contribution to the conversation in our home state.
Please join us in solidarity and support of survivors and the UDVC as we kickoff Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2016. #Utah1in3

Who is UDVC?
The Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is non-government organization representing a team of victim service providers working to serve survivors of domestic and sexual violence across Utah. The UDVC is a private non-profit organization and we have been working with our team of primary purpose, non-profit victim service providers to prevent and address domestic violence in Utah for over 30 years.
Utah currently has no dedicated state funding to support survivor services or DV prevention. Consequently, resources are limited but help is always available; Each year, UDVC member programs provide over 100,000 nights of emergency shelter to men, women and children who are survivors of intimate partner violence in Utah. Our team answers over 43,000 crisis calls each year.
What does "1 in 3" mean?
The UDVC's "Utah 1 in 3" campaign is raising awareness that intimate partner violence is a preventable public health issue in Utah, and that free, confidential help is available 24/7 through their member programs.
Who is putting this together?
The staff and volunteers of the UDVC has been hard at work behind the scenes putting this special evening together. Giuliana Serena of The Bee has come in to host and curate the event, working closely with Narrative Consultant Nan Seymour to co-facilitate preparatory workshops for storytellers.
