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.
In June, TEN MEN's television Public Service Announcement will begin airing on Cox and will continue throughout the month.
The commercial features TEN MEN members addressing domestic violence in their respective organizations, workplaces that represent different sectors of the community. We must all get involved in the prevention of domestic violence to create a peaceful world for future generations.
TEN MEN's radio public service announcement will air in English on WHJY and WEEI, with the Spanish PSA airing on Latina 100.3FM.
TEN MEN is made up of Rhode Island men from diverse walks of life who have a common vision — a world without domestic violence. Most men are not violent in their relationships. But even one man is one man too many.
That is why TEN MEN came together — to reach everyday men who are not sure how to help and therefore remain silent in the face of other men's violence.
TEN MEN is the first statewide effort led by pioneering Rhode Island men who are stepping forward, committed to breaking that silence.

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!
This year, the RICADV's legislative agenda is all about prevention. We're excited to promote the Domestic Violence Prevention Fund bill, which 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.
