The project was made possible through the assistance of New Mexico Senators Udall and Bing/lman and administered by the US Dept. of Justice. The Cambia el Estatus (Change the Status) campaign takes a new direction and ap- proach towards engagmg the Spanish Speaking community in the fight against DV. Whereas other campaigns ask the com- munity to get involved and ad- dress how to helpvictims, Cam- bia el status focuses on secur- ing the buy-in from community members by helping them real- ize that they, too, are negatively affected by DV. According to NMCADV staff member, Vir- ginia Perez Ortega, "The cam- paign messages illustrate how DV is not simply a private af- fair, but how neighborhoods, family, children and individu- als are all in fact negatively af- fected by DV". "We want to change the perceptions of domestic violence as a social norm and while at the same time instill a stronger attitude of intolerance and non- acceptance of DV among young Latinos between the ages of 18- 25", according to NMCADV Director of Policy, Daniel Manzano. "This is a really ex- citing opportunity for us and we are very proud of what has been accomplished." The pilot campaign uses various Spanish-language com- munications and marketing tools to reach the target audi- ence. The following is the list of original productions and materials as well as related mar- ket placement for the debut of Cambia el Estaus in 2011: Radio PSAs - NM Statewide Mall Ads - Coronado Mall (ABQ) and Mesilla Valley Mall (Las Cruces) Media Tours (NM Statewide) Talk Radio Shows (ABQ.

The messages and media platforms of Cambia el Estatus address this gap, and fulfill the need to speak to the Spanish Speaking community in a way that resonates with them and may help change perceptions. "If individuals within com- munities do not realize how their families, children and they. themselves are negatively af- fected by DV", added Manzano, "'they will continue to ignore it and simply consider it as a so- cial norm within the Latino community• We simply cannot let that happen."
