Pace Women’s Justice Center (PWJC) Kicks off 2023 with ‘Love Isn’t’ Campaign

February 3, 2023

In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, the nonprofit organization Pace Women’s Justice Center (PWJC) starts the new year with an educational social media campaign entitled ‘Love Isn’t’.  Starting February 1st thru February 14th, PWJC aims to mainstream communication concerning healthy as well as unacceptable relationship patterns. The focus of the outreach effort is to engage 15-34 year-olds in the conversation of what “Love Isn’t” as females in the 18-34 age bracket experience the highest rates of intimate partner violence according to the CDC’s 2010 survey (NISVS 2010). Among men and women who have experienced physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner, the CDC reports that 20.5% and 25.8% respectively, first experienced some form of partner violence between the ages of 11 and 17. (NISVS 2016/2017).  

With the acknowledgement that love is different for every individual, the PWJC campaign instead centers around a graphic design identifying a series of behaviors which definitively “Love Isn’t” and provides the organization’s contact information via QR code.  The “Love Isn’t” graphic is available on t-shirts, hoodies and ceramic mugs and you may make an additional donation to PWJC and are encouraged to post a video in support of the campaign and tell the audience what “Love Is…” to them.  #LOVEISNT #PWJC #LOVEIS
