We all have the ability to help someone experiencing dating or domestic violence. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Together, our collective actions can make a big difference.

Our most recent public awareness campaign "Get Off the Bench!" features URI student athletes saying NO MORE to dating and domestic violence and asking their fellow Rhode Islanders to do the same.

How will you play your part? How will you say NO MORE?

Welcome to NO MORE RI

Welcome to NOMORERI.org, 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, in solidarity with the national movement against domestic violence. To learn about the national NO MORE campaign, visit NOMORE.org.

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. You can also find information about Rhode Island's domestic violence service agencies, the RICADV's legislative priorities, and ways you can get involved in the work to end domestic violence. #NOMORERI

Get Off the Bench!

October was national Domestic Violence Awareness Month, when we launched a new statewide public awareness campaign featuring URI student athletes saying NO MORE to dating and domestic violence.

How will you "get off the bench" in 2016?

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.
