The NO MORE symbol expresses universal support for ending domestic violence and sexual assault while raising awareness and breaking down the barriers of stigma, silence and shame that keep people from talking about these issues and taking action to prevent them. Wearing or displaying the symbol is one of the many ways you can act to support NO MORE and the movement to end domestic violence and sexual assault.
From the NO MORE website:
“How does NO MORE help survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault?
NO MORE’s work to increase awareness, funding, support and activism to help prevent violence is helping to make a difference in the lives of survivors. NO MORE provides tools and resources to partner organizations that offer lifesaving services and prevention programs.In just a few years, NO MORE has successfully brought together the largest coalition of advocacy groups, service providers, governmental agencies, major corporations, universities, communities and individuals, all under a unifying symbol in support of a world free of violence. Nearly 1,000 organizations and 75,000 individuals have joined NO MORE. Hundreds of schools have NO MORE groups, and another almost 30 local city-wide, state-wide and international NO MORE programs have been born. Thanks to our partners, our PSAs have gotten more than 4.4 billion impressions.Most recently, NO MORE helped raise more than $1.2M for grassroots organizations through the NO MORE Challenge, an online fundraising competition that we hosted in 2016 and 2017.”
How they help: “NO MORE does not accept donations from the general public.
