Uplifting domestic violence awareness through communications
- Sharing the latest news in DV prevention and awareness.
- We respond to domestic violence homicides, and high-profile cases in the news, in order to raise up the voices and experiences of survivors, honor the lives lost, and ensure media coverage is accurate, sensitive, and well-informed.
Public Awareness Campaigns
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.
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.
Domestic Violence Online Guide for Journalists
We work with the Rhode Island media to ensure that press coverage on domestic violence increases awareness about the issue, provides information about available resources, and engages the community to help end abuse. Visit the RICADV’s Online Guide for Journalists for best practices on covering domestic violence.
If you are a member of the media on a deadline and reach out before or after 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Mon. – Fri. or on a weekend, please contact the state Helpline: 1-800-494-8100
