Much like the pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness, or the red ribbon for HIV/AIDS awareness and action, NO MORE’s founders set out to create a powerful, visual way to express support for ending domestic violence (DV) and sexual assault (SA).
Launched in 2013, NO MORE brought 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.
NO MORE’s mission is to unite and strengthen a diverse, global community to help end domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse.
A project of NEO Philanthropy, a 501c3 public charity, 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.
In just a few years, NO MORE has become largest and most successful public awareness campaign on domestic violence and sexual assault in history. Nearly 1,200 organizations and 75,000 individuals have joined NO MORE. Hundreds of schools created NO MORE groups, and another 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.
The coalition organization operates under the guidance of a volunteer Board of Advisors (Interim) and a Steering Committee, which includes representatives from leading anti-violence nonprofits. Day-to-day, NO MORE is overseen by a small, but dedicated team.
