35th Anniversary Celebration
In 2014, the RICADV celebrated 35 years of progress in advocating for victims and holding abusers accountable.
On October 9, during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we commemorated this milestone with special guest Lisa Leslie, WNBA legend, four-time Olympic gold medalist, and supporter of the national NO MORE campaign against domestic violence.
We thank everyone who has played a part in helping us move our work forward. Together we can end domestic violence.
Visit our 35th anniversary page to watch a special video, view photos of the event (coming soon!), and more.Read More
