One of my favorite national campaigns involved in the fight against all forms of domestic violence and sexual assault is Their website best explains the work that they are doing:

  • NO MORE is a new unifying symbol designed to galvanize greater awareness and action to end domestic violence and sexual assault. It was developed because despite the significant progress that has been made in the visibility of domestic violence and sexual assault, these problems affecting millions remain hidden and on the margins of public concern. 
  • The signature blue vanishing point originated from the concept of zero--as in zero incidences of domestic violence and sexual assult.
  • Every major domestic violence and sexual assault organization in the U.S.--from men's organizations like A CALL TO MEN and Men Can Stop Rape, to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, to groups that help teens like Break the Cycle and Futures Without Violence, to organizations that advance the rights of women of Color and immigrants like Casa de Esperanza and SCESA to the U.S. Dept. of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women--all of them and more are behind NO MORE.
  • NO MORE is spotlighting an invisible problem in a whole new way. The first unifying symbol to express support for ending domestic violence and sexual assault, NO MORE can be used by anyone who wants to normalize the conversation around these issues and help end domestic violence and sexual assault. 

From March 17 through March 24, NO MORE is celebrating their first anniversary with NO MORE week. NO MORE week is designed to bring a stronger spotlight to the fight against domestic violence. As an advocate for empowering teens against dating violence, I am delighted to support NO MORE this week and throughout my reign as Miss Empire Star 2014. You can join NO MORE week, too--it's easy, through the #NOMOREWeek Photo Challenge:
  1. Download THIS poster, and share your reason for saying NO MORE.
  2. Take a photo with your picture, and post it to the NO MORE Gallery. You should also share on facebook, twitter, and instagram!
Here's why I say "No More!"

If you submit a picture, be sure to let me know! Leave a comment with a link to your photo, and I will be sure to share it on my Miss Empire Star 2014 facebook page.

I'd sure love to be part of a future where there is NO MORE teen dating violence, domestic abuse, and sexual assault...what about you?!
