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.

Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence Launches New Campaign with KNOW MORE VIDEO PROJECT featuring real bystander stories and live TWEET CHAT for Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Launch also includes digital tools page on ricadv.org
WHERE: www.ricadv.org – premiere of KNOW MORE VIDEO PROJECT featuring real bystander and survivor stories of intervention, and www.Twitter.com/RICADV #NOMORERI for live Tweet Chat where users are encouraged to share their bystander stories and let the RICADV know what they need to KNOW MORE to end domestic violence in their communities. For those that do not have Twitter accounts, a live feed will be shown at www.ricadv.org.
WHEN: Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 2 p.m. EDT
WHY: To launch the KNOW MORE campaign to end domestic violence during Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) 2013! Throughout the month of October the RICADV is asking bystanders to get involved in the movement in various ways. KNOW MORE is an expansion of the organization's adoption of the national NO MORE campaign in Rhode Island, chosen because research shows that educating and engaging bystanders is a promising way to help prevent the widespread problem of domestic and sexual violence within communities.
WHAT: As part of the launch designed to educate every Rhode Islander about domestic violence prevention, the RICADV is debuting a digital tools page, the KNOW MORE VIDEO PROJECT featuring real bystander stories, and inviting community members to participate in a TWEET CHAT to share bystander stories. Additionally, survivors of domestic violence from SOAR (Sisters Overcoming Abusive Relationships) share what it meant to them, when a bystander got involved.
The RICADV's commitment to educating bystanders will go beyond DVAM because it will take more people in more communities coming together to end domestic violence. Visit www.ricadv.org and www.NOMORERI.org; often for additional tools. There, users will be able to give feedback on tools, interact with the RICADV staff, and submit bystander videos for possible inclusion on the websites.
KNOW MORE. DO MORE. KNOWLEDGE IS YOUR FIRST STEP. TOGETHER WE CAN END DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT.
What is NO MORE? NO MORE is a new unifying symbol designed to galvanize greater awareness and action
