#HAVhope Friday: Day of Awareness
Join us June 2, 2023, for #HAVhope Friday
A national day of awareness to end violence
#HAVhope is a national day of awareness to highlight how America’s hospitals and health systems combat violence in their workplaces and communities. On June 2, the seventh annual Hospitals Against Violence #HAVhope Friday hospitals and health systems continue working toward partnerships, innovations and creative thinking to foster peace and make a safer environment for workers and patients.
We invite you to share using #HAVhope what your hospital or health system is doing in this effort. By operating as a united front, our hospitals can forge a path for all to have hope.

The discussion fostered an exchange of ideas and solutions that informed this issue brief and accompanying case studies.
