With your help, we've made great strides in the movement to end domestic violence in Rhode Island. We now invite you to stand with us, our task force of domestic violence survivors (SOAR - Sisters Overcoming Abusive Relationships), and six member agencies (Blackstone Valley Advocacy Center, Domestic Violence Resource Center of South County, Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center, Sojourner House, Women's Center of RI, Women's Resource Center) on March 11 as we let local leaders KNOW that we must all come together to prevent domestic violence.
Future generations need us to do the work involved in creating healthy communities that are free of violence. Our children have a right to a peaceful world where the threat of domestic violence no longer exists. Building this future is our responsibility and can be our legacy.
So please join us as we propel our movement forward on this special day. Let our collective presence send the message that the statewide domestic violence community is strong and committed to this issue. NO MORE. Together we can prevent and end domestic violence.

#NOMORERI Tweet Chat Series, which will be led by survivors of dating violence, is aimed at youth as part of the nationally-recognized Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention
Successful launch received national support
Third conversation (2/22) in the #NOMORERI Tweet Chat Series: a three-day social media event about healthy relationships led by survivors of dating violence. It is part of the NO MORE RI campaign for Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. The final topic is "Breaking the Cycle of Abuse" and explores the ongoing effects of abuse on children who witness.
The #NOMORERI Tweet Chat Series focuses on healthy relationships and includes personal stories and time to "chat" with members of SOAR (Sisters Overcoming Abusive Relationships) who overcame dating violence. By offering a forum for discussing what a healthy relationship is and isn't, the RICADV's aim is for participants to 1) recognize the signs of abuse and 2) learn strategies for ending, reporting, and getting help for those who may be victims of dating violence.
One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner.
Clearly, there's a conversation that needs to happen and the RICADV and its task force of dating/domestic violence survivors, SOAR), are using Twitter and Facebook to reach teens and college students where they spend the most free time—online.
Second "Tweet Chat": Friday, February 22, 2 -4 p.m. - snow or shine.
*Everyone is encouraged to participate, including young adults, those who work with youth, have children who are dating, or have a personal experience to share.
