NO MORE Campaign

Tricoci University’s NO MORE PSA

The harsh reality is domestic abuse, sexual assault, and emotional abuse can happen to anyone – all genders, ages, races, and income levels. Even if it doesn’t affect you personally, the odds are that it has affected someone you know. 1 in 3 women experience violence from their partners at some point in their life and we felt we needed to make a commitment to our students to be there for them and to help keep them safe.

To get the ball rolling, the TUBC staff decided to create it’s own PSA video, introducing it’s students and staff to the cause and the difference a single video can make. Once the video was rolled out, we started to think – why stop there? Our video was only one take on what “NO MORE” meant and we wanted to hear from our students.

What is NO MORE?

NO MORE is a unifying symbol and campaign to raise public awareness and engage bystanders around ending domestic violence and sexual assault. Launched in March 2013 by a coalition of leading advocacy groups, service providers, the U.S. Department of Justice, and major corporations, NO MORE is supported by hundreds of national and local groups and by thousands of individuals, organizations, universities, and communities who are using its signature blue symbol to increase visibility for domestic violence and sexual assault.

NO MORE was conceived to amplify the power of the domestic violence and sexual assault movement using a unifying symbol to drive awareness and break down the barriers of stigma, silence, and shame that keep people from talking about these issues and taking action to prevent them. Co-founded as a public/private partnership, NO MORE was created as a platform for those working to end domestic violence/sexual assault, in the belief that greater dialogue will fuel enhanced funding for direct service, advocacy, and prevention.

NO MORE was founded with several key principles:

  • The NO MORE symbol is not owned by any one organization. Rather it belongs to and is available for use by all those (organizations or individuals) who are committed to help end domestic violence and sexual assault. Tools to use the symbol are available completely free of charge here.
  • NO MORE does not accept donations from the general public. NO MORE directs individual donations and any profit generated from the sale of products in the NO MORE store to partner organizations in the direct service, advocacy and prevention field (see the list of benefitting organizations here). NO MORE also encourages those working to end domestic violence and sexual assault to use the NO MORE symbol and assets to raise money, generate support, and bring communities together around these issues. Seed and limited operating funding, as well as pro-bono services for NO MORE, come from a team of volunteers, corporations and corporate foundations who share the vision of NO MORE. A full list of funders is available here.
  • NO MORE does not provide direct services or lobby for policy reforms. Instead, NO MORE works to bring visibility, resources and amplify the key messages of local, state and national non-profit organizations for whom NO MORE was founded and with whom NO MORE partners.
