At the RICADV, we work with the media to raise awareness about domestic violence, the services and resources available, and the ways our communities can get involved to help prevent and end abuse.
We respond to domestic violence homicides, and other high-profile cases in the news, in order to raise up the voices and experiences of survivors, honor the lives lost, and ensure that media coverage is accurate, sensitive, and well-informed.
We conduct public awareness campaigns throughout the year to keep the issue of domestic violence visible in our state and to engage Rhode Islanders in saying "No More!" Together, we can end domestic violence.
If you are a member of the media on deadline and are reaching out after hours or on a weekend, please contact the state Helpline:
