One of the campaigns, taking place under the motto “Silence hurts”, is focused on reporting cases of violence – encouraging people to speak out, not keep silent about them. Its motto is “Domestic violence concerns us all, don’t be afraid to speak out!”. The campaign is part of the project implemented by the Czech Association of Intervention Centres Workers called “Improving the practice in preventing, identifying and eliminating domestic violence by means of professional specialisation”, financed from the Norwegian Funds through the programme “Let’s Give Us (women) a Chance”, run by the Prague Open Society Fund. In this project the Department of Security Policy and Crime Prevention of the Czech Ministry of the Interior acts as an expert partner. Celebrities are participating in the campaign, with the aim to inform the public about the mission of the Intervention Centres which are a contact point for victims of domestic violence.
