When we stay silent, domestic violence thrives.

This October, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), we are calling on Rhode Island communities to break the silence.

Each of us must make it our business to speak up when we see or hear something troubling and to have conversations with friends, family, colleagues, youth, and others in our lives.

Whether it be in our workplaces, schools, places of worship, or other community spaces, we can support survivors and their children by raising awareness of the issue and creating environments that do not tolerate domestic violence.

Welcome to NO MORE RI

Welcome to, a website of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV).

This site is one way the RICADV is bringing the message of "NO MORE Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault" to Rhode Islanders. To learn about the national NO MORE campaign, visit

Tune into this website for updates on our statewide 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.

NO MORE Silence

1 in 4 Rhode Islanders is a victim of abuse. They are our loved ones, neighbors, and friends, and they are counting on us to make it our business.

No More "It's Not My Problem"

Watch the video we created for DVAM 2017. The video will play before every Providence Bruins home game in October and features the English version of our radio PSA, which will be airing on local radio stations and PANDORA all month long. Plus, keep an eye out for the "No More Silence" campaign on buses and billboards across the state!

Ways to Get Involved

If we each make a commitment to help end domestic violence, just think about the collective impact we can have.

Together, we can build a safer, more peaceful Rhode Island. No More Silence!

Prevention Corner

Our future depends on preventing domestic violence

Now more than ever, people are becoming aware of and outraged by the harmful impacts of dating and domestic violence. With primary prevention, we can stop the violence before it happens in the first place, before people ever become victims or perpetrators of abuse.
