Only 28 days before the start of DVAM 2014...

The Domestic Violence Awareness Project joins NO MORE in their quest to increase national awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault and to unite the efforts of both movements to end gender-based violence. Created in 2010 by a zealous group of 50 individuals from varying backgrounds with the support of major anti-violence organizations, corporations and networks, and by employing solid, cause marketing, research-based data, NO MORE seeks to "stop the stigma, shame and silence for good." NO MORE is bringing greater attention to the widespread issue of domestic violence and sexual assault through the implementation of a unifying symbol that can be used by all to show support for ending these forms of abuse. 

By harnessing our collective influence through public awareness events, social media, mass marketing, celebrity appeal, and a unified demonstration of support, our efforts, our voices and our impact are stronger. This year, as NO MORE continues to grow, and in anticipation of a full-scale launch in January 2013, the DVAP encourages all programs and coalitions to integrate NO MORE into their current planning for DVAM, October 2012.

HOW CAN YOU JOIN THE NO MORE CAMPAIGN?

  1. Request a free NO MORE Introductory Toolkit to obtain the resources needed to make the NO MORE symbol a part of your DVAM public awareness campaigns and activities. The toolkit includes:
    • Two introductory emails that can be tailored to the voice of your organization, then distributed to your networks along with an image file of the NO MORE symbol.
    • A series of sample social media posts that can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and your other networks.
    • The NO MORE index sheet that provides guidelines for using the symbol.
    • The NO MORE spectral data sheet, which can be used to match the NO MORE colors exactly for printing the symbol on brochures, t-shirts and other products.
    • Several folders of the NO MORE symbol in various sizes, both with and without the tagline, in portrait and in landscape for easy download, use and sharing.
    • Customizable poster templates in a variety of sizes for download and use.
  2. Read the NO MORE FAQ. This summary of frequently asked questions provides specific answers about how the NO MORE symbol came about, how you can use the NO MORE symbol in printed and online materials, and how to co-brand NO MORE with your current initiatives.
