Hospitals Against Violence

The American Hospital Association (AHA) and its members are gearing up for #HAVhope National Day of Awareness on Friday, June 9, a day which will focus national attention on ending all forms of violence with a digital media campaign including shared tweets, posted photos and other online efforts.

#HAVhope National Day of Awareness aims to unite hospitals, health systems, nurses, doctors and other professionals from across the country, as well as the local and national organizations they work with, to combat violence through the use of digital media. Violence is one of the nation’s major public health and safety issues, both in our communities and workplaces.

The AHA is asking supporters to:

  • Share a photo of yourself holding hands with others in your community or workplace committed to combating violence. Photos will be displayed on the AHA PreventViolence website.
  • Use the hashtag #HAVhope on social media to highlight your work or commitment to combat violence in your community or workplace.
