It's on all of us to end domestic violence

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), and we’re calling 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.

This DVAM, you can 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 violence. Together, we can create a safer Rhode Island for everyone.

Calling men in to prevent abuse

Men can help build a world without violence. This June, our public awareness campaign called men in to learn how they can show up for all people - including women and trans and gender non-conforming people - in positive, affirming ways. Every day, men in our community can help build safe, healthy spaces where everyone can thrive. Learn more by visiting the Ten Men page of the RICADV website.

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.

We stand with our national partners NNEDV and with birthing people in the U.S. as we mourn the loss of Roe. "We also acknowledge that many people struggled to access abortion services—as well as the full complement of reproductive healthcare options—before the constitutional right to abortion was overturned. State bans and restrictions have been—and will continue to be—devastating for low-income survivors, survivors of color, survivors with disabilities, and others who already face substantial barriers to accessing the healthcare they need. Every person deserves the right to make their own decisions about their bodies, and we must also center those who have been—and continue to be—most harmed by decisions like Dobbs." - Deborah J. Vagins, NNEDV President & CEOToday marks what would have been the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in #Roe v. Wade. NNEDV remains gravely concerned by the Court’s #Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe and has the potential to further harm domestic violence survivors in need. Read President & CEO Deborah J.
