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 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.

Your Voice Matters!

We are committed to the prevention of domestic and dating violence, and we know that men can play a huge part in shifting the learned, and often harmful, attitudes and behaviors that exist around masculinity, gender and relationships.

TEN MEN are showing Rhode Islanders that men are already doing the work to end domestic violence!

Policy Corner

In 2013, the RICADV's legislative focus was all about prevention. We have been advocating for the Domestic Violence Prevention Fund bill since 2012, a bill that would create a critical source of state funding for primary prevention programs for the first time in our state’s history.

We invite the community to stand with us in support of a violence-free world for future generations.
