We recently launched a statewide public awareness campaign called Hidden Meanings, to send the message that domestic violence is not just physical.
Shining a light on other forms of abuse, the campaign calls on Rhode Islanders to learn more about the warning signs and be able to identify potential red flags in a relationship.
For information about the dynamics and warning signs of intimate partner violence, read our informational handbook Peace At Home.
The campaign was featured on buses and billboards throughout the state, and on local radio stations and Pandora. To listen to our radio PSA, click here.
Vigil at the Rhode Island State House
During the week of October 14th, the RI State House was illuminated in purple to raise awareness about domestic violence.
On Tuesday, October 16th, we held a candlight vigil in partnership with our member agencies on the steps of the Rhode Island State House, to remember and honor all those who have lost their lives to domestic violence.
