Welcome to NOMORERI.org, a website of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV).
This site is one way that the RICADV has embraced the national NO MORE campaign and its website NOMORE.org.
Join us in standing up and speaking out against domestic violence. Tune into this website for updates on our public awareness campaigns, which include Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) each October, Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month every February, and our Men's Campaign in June.
We also post information here about our policy priorities, our advocacy efforts and the ways you can get involved to say NO MORE and help end domestic violence in Rhode Island.
We're excited to introduce you to the new Ten Men and tell you all about their upcoming plans. Click below to watch the PSA that will air throughout June! In the coming days we'll post more information about their efforts to prevent and end domestic violence on RICADV.org, so make sure to visit often!
Ten Men is made up of Rhode Island men from diverse walks of life who have a common vision — a world without domestic violence. Most men are not violent in their relationships. But even one man is one too many. That is why Ten Men came together — to reach everyday men who are not sure how to help and therefore remain silent in the face of other men's violence. Ten Men is the first statewide effort consisting of pioneering male leaders who have stepped forward and are committed to breaking that silence.
Join us as we descend on the RI State House on 6/9/15 to show support for the Domestic Violence Prevention Fund and let the General Assembly know that we must pass the bill if we ever wish to prevent, and ultimately end domestic violence in our state.
By June 9, the # of children present at a domestic violence arrest will reach 500! This is unacceptable and deadly to RI's future. We can't afford to ignore domestic violence any longer.
The primary prevention of domestic violence aims to create social change. We are working to cultivate individuals and communities that do not tolerate violence and support healthy relationships and gender equality.
To achieve this peaceful vision for the future, we must shift deeply ingrained attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that contribute to domestic violence. You can help! Together we can prevent dating and domestic violence. Know More.
We recently launched a new website that adapts to mobile devices to make it more user-friendly.
As part of Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month, we created the
Teen Center, an extension of our main site designed specifically for young people.
Use the site to learn about abusive vs. healthy relationships, where to get help, or how to help a friend.
When you Know More, you can Do More.
