Prevention Corner

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.
