We recently launched our Texting Peace initiative in Guatemala. We will launch our text-messaging campaign in the United States in April 2012.
The project has two phases. The first phase allows our audiences to subscribe to our service and receive news, tips, updates, and inspirational quotes on how to prevent violence. Our operators will send a message to all who have registered to our service once or twice a month.
The second phase allows women to communicate directly with our team via text messaging for a referral or advice. When a woman wishes to report threats or harassment, or is in need of emotional support or a reference, she can send an SMS message to our service. An operator will then answer with information, responding to every situation accordingly.
