NO MORE Week of Action Events
All of us can play a role in ending domestic violence and sexual assault. No matter how big or small, every action is important and we welcome them all!
The goals of NO MORE Week Activities are the same (Click here to learn more about NO MORE Week) but the scale and content are really dependent on the time and resources you have. The following are just some ideas we’ve come up with and some examples of things other people have done. Whatever you choose to do, be sure to add your event to the map and tag us in photos on Twitter (@NOMOREorg), Facebook (@NOMORE.org), Instagram (@NOMOREorg) so we can promote your efforts and inspire others to take action!
