HOUSTON – The Aid to Victims of Domestic Violence organization launched its billboard campaign on Thursday ahead of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
The billboards were donated by Clear Channel Outdoor.
According to a news release, the campaign, featuring Houston Rockets Forward Tari Eason, will be seen across Harris and Fort Bend counties on six surface street billboards and 52 freeway billboards in English and Spanish.
Eason was in attendance and shared the generational impact domestic violence has had on his family and the importance of awareness and prevention. “My mother always told me that domestic violence is not ok. she always told me the importance of knowing when it’s serious and knowing when to get help. I’m here. My family is here to just try to do all we can and speak up and advocate and try to eradicate domestic violence and family violence for all people,” Eason said.
