Get Off the Bench!

October was national Domestic Violence Awareness Month, when we launched a new statewide public awareness campaign featuring URI student athletes speaking out against domestic violence and asking their fellow Rhode Islanders to do the same.

Now, we're extending the campaign throughout February to reach young people in Rhode Island for national Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. How will you "get off the bench" in 2016? How will you say NO MORE?

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.
