Be Part of NO MORE Day
A National Day of Awareness for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault
MARCH 13, 2013
We’re pleased and excited to announce that March 13 is NO MORE Day, the public launch of the country’s first unifying awareness symbol for domestic violence and sexual assault. Join us to launch NO MORE and participate in one of the most concerted and collaborative efforts to raise awareness for these issues.

NO MORE is a groundbreaking symbol (like the pink breast cancer ribbon and the red AIDS ribbon) designed to galvanize change and radically increase the awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault in our communities.

On March 13, NO MORE Day, thousands of advocates and supporters across the country will unite to officially launch NO MORE.

Domestic violence and sexual assault are not easy to talk about, although they impact millions of men, women and children every year. Because of the stigma and shame, these issues often remain hidden in our society. NO MORE seeks to bring domestic violence and sexual assault into the national spotlight to generate more attention, more resources and more action to prevent them. NO MORE aims to empower bystanders of domestic violence and sexual assault in every community to break their silence around these issues and get involved. 

• KNOW MORE. Learn the signs of domestic violence and listen without judgment to victims/survivors of   sexual assault. Get the facts and know the resources available.
• Say NO MORE. Break the silence. Speak out. Seek help when you see this problem or harassment of any kind in your family, your community, your workplace or school.
• Share NO MORE. Share the NO MORE symbol with everyone you know. Facebook it. Tweet it.Pin it. Instagram it. Email it. Wear it. Help to increase awareness about the extent of domestic violence and sexual assault. Visit the NO MORE Shop at

Sound Relationships

What’s playing on your iPod? Music, like food, can feed our brains and give us energy. But, it can also make us think of bad things that can affect us negatively. Some music could also change our health and the health of our relationships. Just like food we eat, it is important to have a balanced “song” diet that includes things for a healthy relationship. Knowing the mixture will help you make a wise choice about which songs will promote good healthy relationship.

Do the love songs you listen to promote happiness, enjoyment, support, respect, and trust? Or do they cause drama, disrespect, jealousy, and fear? The songs we listen to can affect our relationships, so it’s important to cut out anything unhealthy so we can have a balanced “diet” for a sound relationship.
