This movement spreads the information on domestic violence and provides some ways to help its victims. Let’s find out the story of this campaign and its latest news.

What Is It All About?

The campaign was set up in march 2013 aiming to attract public attention to the problem of domestic violence and sexual assault. Originally, it as organized by the professional advocacy groups, service providers, the US Department of Justice, and major corporations. Now it is supported by hundreds of people, organizations, universities and communities  not only in the US.

The main project’s goal is to educate people around and give them all the information and facts about violence and abuse. On the campaign’s web-site users can find the information about what is domestic violence, how often does it happen in their country and the whole of other useful information. What is more important, the project explains how to attract attention to the problem – there are three ways: say it, share it and show it. And of course, there is an opportunity for domestic violence’s victims to ask help.

It is unknown how much awareness the project has raised, but it did attracted some serious resources, brands and celebrities to get this campaign visible. Virginia Witt, director of #NoMore says: ‘’We don’t have an exact total of how much money and support has been generated for the field because of #NoMore. But as more celebrities, brands and advocates get behind it, and the profile of #NoMore continues to go up, we are confident that it will continue to be seen as asset to them’
