2016 & 2015 – Get Off the Bench!
"GET OFF THE BENCH!"
This public awareness campaign features URI student athletes speaking out against domestic violence and asking their fellow Rhode Islanders to do the same.
Domestic violence impacts all of us, and will take all of us, together, to end it. How will you “get off the bench”? How will you play your part?
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 get involved, as a strategy to create more widespread, sustainable change.

CRIME VICTIM COMPENSATION PROGRAM
We need community leaders to support and drive efforts to address and end domestic violence. In 2013, Governor Raimondo (who was General Treasurer at that time) got involved in our campaign to raise awareness about the Crime Victim Compensation Program.
