“Silicon Saviors or Digital Threats?”
Join us during NO MORE Week 2024 for a special KNOW MORE Global Dialogue Series symposium focused on technology’s positive and negative impacts on domestic and sexual violence. NO MORE will convene experts, advocates, and innovators from across the world for a one-day virtual event, which will explore how tech. is being used to stalk, harass, and harm survivors, but also how it’s being used to enhance safety and connectivity. Through a series of sessions, we’ll share new ideas and best practices that innovators, tech developers, and community leaders can use to prevent or minimize abuse and be part of the solution to end domestic and sexual violence.

New “Part of the Solution” Stories Launches
We’re excited to have launched the new “Part of the Solution” content series for 2024 with a powerful story by our dedicated Board member Daniel Herndon about his journey “from bystander to ambassador.” The series is aimed at increasing awareness on the vast impact of domestic and sexual violence and inspiring more people to help support survivors, stop and prevent all forms of abuse and champion the change needed in our culture and communities. Check out Daniel’s story below and look out for more throughout the year.
Raising Awareness of Stalking
Statistics show that one in three women and one in six men face stalking in their lifetimes. Most often the perpetrator is someone the victim knows – and at one time trusted. Survivors can be terrorized for years as they try to stay safe – at home, at work and online. It’s important to understand the signs of stalking, which can include getting unwanted texts, photos, emails and phone calls; being followed and watched; getting approached in places uninvited; receiving unwanted gifts; and using technology to monitor, track or spy on the victim. If you need support, call the National Center for Victims of Crime hotline at 855-4-VICTIM (855-484-2846). Outside of the U.S., go to NO MORE Global Directory.
