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.

Statement by Deborah DeBare, Executive Director of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence
"We hope that today's verdict helps begin the healing process for the family and friends of Brooke Verdoia. Although justice was served, we know the human life that was lost can never be replaced. By delivering such a strong verdict the jury sent a clear message to our community that domestic violence offenders will be held accountable."
"We commend the Office of the Attorney General in prosecuting the murder of Brooke Verdoia to the fullest extent of the law and hope sentencing will reflect the severity of the crime perpetrated by Armando Garcia. We also commend the law enforcement officers and detectives involved in the investigation for their diligence and thorough collection of the critical evidence leading to this conviction."
"Domestic violence happens every day in Rhode Island and no community or family is immune to it. It is time to say NO MORE to domestic violence. We must all make a commitment to reach out to anyone who we suspect is in an abusive situation to prevent another tragic loss."
"There are six local domestic violence agencies in our state that provide a wide array of services, including 24 hour hotline support, emergency shelter, support groups and assistance with the legal system. We urge all Rhode Islanders to remember that if they hear or see someone being hurt to call 911 immediately and if they or someone they know needs support to call the statewide Helpline at 800-494-8100."
