Thomas Bookman, CHEP, CEM, CEDP, emergency manager for the Regional Health Command headquartered at Tripler Army Medical Center, presented the award during the monthly meeting of the HAH Emergency Services Coalition.

Free Car Magnets for Fighting Domestic Violence, Sex Abuse

Hawaii Says NO MORE, a local movement aimed at ending domestic violence and sexual assault, is offering free car magnets to HAH member organizations that would like to distribute them to the public.

The car magnets are provided by the Joyful Heart Foundation and are part of the promotion for Hawaii Says NO MORE week from March 5-11. Each magnet will come with a small card explaining Hawaii Says NO MORE, what people can do to help, and what the symbol means.

The organization hopes to stimulate awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault, and engage community members in discussions about these topics.  

Participants in the movement include Catholic Charities of Hawai‘i, Child & Family Service, Hawaii State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Hawai‘i State Commission on the Status of Women, Hawaii Youth Services Network, Joyful Heart Foundation, Parents and Children Together, the Department of the Attorney General, the Department of Human Services, the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo Student Health and Wellness Programs, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, the Office of Gender Equity, the University of Hawai‘i System, the Office of Institutional Equity, Windward Spouse Abuse Shelter, Women Helping Women Maui and Lanaʻi, and YWCA O‘ahu.
