We all have the ability to help someone experiencing relationship abuse. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Together, our collective actions can make a big difference.

Our most recent public awareness campaign "Get Off the Bench!" features URI student athletes saying NO MORE to dating and domestic violence and asking their fellow Rhode Islanders to do the same.

How will you play your part? How will you say NO MORE?

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, in solidarity with the national movement against domestic violence. 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 Rhode Island's domestic violence service agencies, the RICADV's legislative priorities, and ways you can get involved in the work to end domestic violence. #NOMORERI

The primary prevention of domestic violence aims to create social change. We are working to cultivate individuals and communities that do not tolerate violence and support healthy relationships and gender equality.

To achieve this peaceful vision for the future, we must shift deeply ingrained attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that contribute to domestic violence. You can help! Together we can prevent dating and domestic violence. Know More.
