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.
This year, the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV) celebrates 35 years of progress and leadership in the movement to end domestic violence.
On October 9, we commemorated this milestone with special guest Lisa Leslie, WNBA legend, four-time Olympic gold medalist and supporter of the national NO MORE campaign against domestic violence. Check out our event photos here!
When communities stand up as leaders on this issue, individuals have the tools and support they need to help and get help.
This DVAM, we invite Rhode Island's business, healthcare, faith and Latino communities to get involved in our efforts to end domestic violence. Visit RICADV.org for community tools and more!
When you KNOW MORE, you can DO MORE.
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!
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.
