TDVAM 2022
Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month

Consent is yours to give, or not to give – the decision is yours. Setting up boundaries – physical or not, in any of your relationships – is a need and a right each of us has, and we deserve to have our boundaries respected. During Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAM) in February and always, we affirmed everyone’s power in their personal decisions around physical, emotional and sexual consent and other boundaries, including use of personal time. In all of our relationships, whether with dating partners, friends, or family members, we have a right to say “no,” need more space, or change our minds.

This TDVAM, we highlighted the importance of feeling empowered and demanding respect in all relationships. We shared examples of ways to practice vocalizing your boundaries and highlighted how healthy relationships include self-love and self-empowerment.

Men Slide
Men can help build a world without violence

This June, we invited Rhode Island men to learn more about the role they can play in preventing abuse.

Men in our community can help build safe, healthy spaces where all of us can thrive. Our 2021 public awareness campaign called men in to show up for all people, including women, in positive ways.

DOMESTIC Violence Month
It's on all of us to end domestic violence

During National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) in October, we called the community in - because it’s on all of us to end domestic violence. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, survivors have faced heightened barriers to safety that will leave long-lasting impacts, and they need our support on their journey to healing as they rebuild their lives after abuse.

Though DVAM has passed, you can always support survivors in your community by learning ways to be an active bystander. Domestic violence affects us all, and it is crucial to know the signs of abuse and learn where to get support or how to provide resources to someone experiencing dangerous situations. Together, we can create a safer Rhode Island for everyone.
