This October, join us in recognizing National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM).

We've launched a new statewide public awareness campaign Hidden Meanings. The campaign shines a light on domestic violence by encouraging all of us to take a closer look at our relationships, and to question our definition of what a healthy relationship looks like.

Look and listen for the campaign on buses, billboards, local radio, Pandora, and more! Together, we can end domestic violence.

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. 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 the RICADV's network of member agencies, and ways you can get involved in the work to end domestic violence. #NOMORERI

"Hidden Meanings" Campaign

Domestic violence isn't always obvious. Sometimes, the signs of abuse aren't clear or easy to recognize.


We all have a responsibility to know about the warning signs and be able to identify potential red flags in a relationship. To learn more, check out the RICADV's informational handbook Peace At Home.

We invite the public to join us on Tuesday, October 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the Rhode Island State House to remember and honor all those we have lost to domestic violence. To RSVP and share the event on Facebook, click here.
