2016 & 2015 – Get Off the Bench!
2014 – Know More. Do More.
In 2013 and 2014, the RICADV launched a public awareness campaign to help bystanders "Know More and Do More" to end domestic violence in Rhode Island.
The 2013 campaign focused on empowering individuals to take action. Then in 2014, we engaged communities and organizations to create more widespread and lasting change. No one can do everything, but each of us can do something. Together, we can end domestic violence.
KNOW MORE VIDEO PROJECT:
The stories you'll see below are true accounts of bystanders who intervened in domestic violence situations. We thank them for their courage in sharing their stories. We also thank survivors of domestic violence from SOAR (Sisters Overcoming Abusive Relationships) for sharing what it meant to have a bystander help them stay safe.
SURVIVOR STORIES OF BYSTANDER INTERVENTION
We are all bystanders to domestic violence. So how can we become active bystanders and help prevent it? Community leaders are well positioned to support and drive efforts to end domestic violence -- by giving victims the resources to stay safe, or changing the laws to protect them and keep batterers accountable. How will you say NO MORE?
