Action by friends or peers can actually help to prevent dating violence or stop if from getting worse.

Prevention Corner

The Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence is committed to the prevention of domestic and dating violence, and we believe that educating and engaging bystanders are promising ways to prevent intimate partner violence in communities.

For 2014's TDVAPM campaign, the RICADV has partnered with Young Voices, a Rhode Island-based non-profit whose goal is to transform urban youth into powerful advocates working to create change and improve the lives of young Rhode Islanders.

The youth from Young Voices are the faces of our KNOW What to Do - KNOW What Love Is 2014 campaign. They've starred in our public service announcements that will broadcast on TV, radio and Pandora throughout the month; they're featured in on our online ads and on our Instagram contest flyer.

We hope that by hearing their peers speak out against dating violence, young people in Rhode Island will be more committed to the movement to end it.  Our goal is to give youth the tools and confidence they need to become active bystanders and to promote healthy relationships in their own social circles and communities.

Policy Corner

This year, the RICADV's legislative agenda is all about prevention.  We're excited to engage the youth of Young Voices - the faces of our TDVAPM campaign - to help us promote healthy, safe relationships in February and address domestic and dating violence as a statewide public health issue.

The youth of Young Voices are trained to lead systemic reform and policy initiatives in RI that will improve the lives of young people. When we look at the alarming statistics on teen dating violence, it is clear that Rhode Island needs an authentic youth voice in policy-making around dating violence prevention.

We are thrilled to be working with these young people as we continue to push for the Domestic Violence Prevention Fund bill this legislative session. The bill would create the first source of state funding for domestic and dating violence prevention efforts in Rhode Island.

We hope to see RI commit to funding prevention in 2014 and, in doing so, say NO MORE to domestic and dating violence.
