This year, we commemorated the 7th annual NO MORE Week by showcasing individuals, organizations and communities making change happen to help end domestic and sexual violence.
Despite an extremely challenging time in the world, so many people came together in person and online to say NO MORE to domestic violence and sexual assault. Here are a few highlights from the Week:
Southwest PA Says NO MORE celebrated the beginning of NO MORE Week with its annual meeting and report to the community. This annual event brings together leaders, partners and supporters of the regional initiative led by the FISA Foundation, and is a way for community members to convene on the issues of domestic and sexual violence prevention.
Australia Says NO MORE released a powerful new celebrity public service announcement during NO MORE Week—titled “Enough is Enough.” This is the latest in a series of large-scale media campaigns featuring photos and statements from influential Australian celebrities, declaring the reasons that they are saying NOMORE to domestic and sexual violence.
