What is NO MORE?
NO MORE unites and strengthens a diverse, global community to help end domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse.
Launched in 2013, NO MORE brings together the largest coalition of advocacy groups, service providers, governmental agencies, major corporations, universities, communities and individuals, all under a common brand and a unifying symbol in support of a world free of violence.
What is NO MORE’s goal?
NO MORE is dedicated to getting the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse out of the shadows and encouraging everyone — women and men, youth and adults, from all walks of life — to be part of the solution. By creating public awareness campaigns, providing tools and resources for anti-violence organizations and sparking national and international activism, NO MORE inspires cultural change and advances societal progress.
The NO MORE symbol is not owned by any one organization. Rather, it belongs to and is available for use by all those committed to help end domestic violence and sexual assault. Tools to use the symbol are available completely free of charge and can be found in the NO MORE Toolkit.
Who is behind NO MORE?
NO MORE is a project of NEO Philanthropy, a 501(c)(3) public charity. (EIN#13-3191113).
The coalition organization operates under the guidance of an Executive Board and a Steering Committee, which includes representatives from leading anti-violence nonprofits and corporate partners. See the members of our Board of Advisors and Steering Committee here! Day-to-day, NO MORE is overseen by a small, but dedicated team.
NO MORE is also supported by over 1,400 allied groups and organizations, as well as hundreds of student groups. Additionally, there are more than 40 state, city and country-led campaigns that are run independently of the national NO MORE movement. Local NO MORE campaigns are featured on our homepage.

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.
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.
What research has NO MORE conducted?
NO MORE partnered with the Avon Foundation for Women to conduct two NO MORE studies, examining the attitudes of teens and young adults toward domestic violence and sexual assault. The research, disseminated in March and September of 2014, uncovered that 3 in 4 parents (73%) have not talked to their children about domestic violence or sexual assault and that 64% of Americans say that if we talk more about these issues, it would make it easier for them to help someone.
A national NO MÁS study of the impact of these issues in the Latin@ community, commissioned by the Avon Foundation for Women and conducted in partnership with Casa de Esperanza, was released in the spring of 2015. Learn more at www.nomore.org/nomas or www.wesayNOMAS.org.
In addition to contributing new and important insights about these issues to the prevention field and the world, the NO MORE studies have helped generate tremendous awareness for domestic violence and sexual assault, helping people understand the urgency of these problems.
