The Black Dot Campaign:
Can Victims Of Domestic Violence Signal For Help With Black Dots On Their Palms?
The Black Dot Campaign is to enable victims who can not ask for help verbally to ask for help with a simple black dot. They simply draw a black dot on their hands and agencies, family, friends, community centres, doctors, hospitals can recognise this person needs help but can not ask for it. Victims of domestic violence, by putting a black dot on their palms, can show that they're in danger. So if you ever notice a person with a black dot on his/her palm, help this person and call the police.
The organizers behind the Black Dot Campaign state: “The black dot on the hand lets professionals know you're a really vulnerable domestic violence survivor, and that you need help but can't ask because your abuser is watching your every move. In just 24 hours, the campaign has reached over 6,000 people worldwide, and has already helped 6 women.
Please spread the campaign, and post a picture of your hand with the black dot on your Facebook page, to show your support to all survivors of domestic violence.
