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

Our current 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.

Domestic violence impacts all of us, and will take all of us, together, to end it. How will you “get off the bench”? 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 the RICADV's network of member organizations, our legislative priorities, and ways you can get involved in the work to end domestic violence. #NOMORERI

Get Off the Bench!

Domestic Violence Awareness Month may have come to a close, but we continue to call on Rhode Islanders to "Get Off the Bench!"

Since the launch of our awareness campaign in 2015, we have seen so many community members and organizations take initiative to address domestic violence and show what it means to take a stand against it.

Watch our public service announcement below that stars URI athletes speaking out and saying NO MORE.
