With your help, we've made great strides in the movement to end domestic violence in Rhode Island. We now invite you to stand with us, our task force of domestic violence survivors (SOAR - Sisters Overcoming Abusive Relationships), and six member agencies (Blackstone Valley Advocacy Center, Domestic Violence Resource Center of South County, Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center, Sojourner House, Women's Center of RI, Women's Resource Center) on March 11 as we let local leaders KNOW that we must all come together to prevent domestic violence.
Future generations need us to do the work involved in creating healthy communities that are free of violence. Our children have a right to a peaceful world where the threat of domestic violence no longer exists. Building this future is our responsibility and can be our legacy.
So please join us as we propel our movement forward on this special day. Let our collective presence send the message that the statewide domestic violence community is strong and committed to this issue. NO MORE. Together we can prevent and end domestic violence.

The lighting, which will be most prominent after dusk and during the evening, is part of the statewide NO MORE campaign that in February is designed to teach youth about healthy relationships
[Providence, R.I.]The Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV) announced today that the State House will be lit teal from February 15-22 in recognition of Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAPM). The new color is symbolic of the national NO MORE campaign to end dating and domestic violence in Rhode Island. The NO MORE symbol and color are part of a national effort to unify all organizations that work towards the elimination of this relationship abuse and advocate for the rights of victims.
The lighting is part of many activities the RICADV and its member agencies are hosting throughout February to reach teens and young adults and to raise awareness about dating violence.
Other TDVAPM Highlights:
Tweet Chat Series – 2/8, 2/15 and 2/22 from 2-4 p.m.
A three-day social media event about healthy relationships led by survivors of dating violence. The chats take place on Twitter and Facebook @ricadv using #NOMORERI. Everyone is encouraged to participate, including teen/young adults, those who work with youth, have children who are dating, or have a personal experience to share.
Digital Dating Violence Training – 2/27 from 1-3 p.m. at the Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center
The training, Innovative Ways to Work with Youth on Teen Dating Violence Prevention in the Digital Era, will answer the question, "Can technology and the internet be used to teach the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships?" and provide strategies for engaging youth. Registration is open now at www.ricadv.org.
