USVI Says NO MORE is a territory-wide campaign by us, for us.

 

What's the USVI Says NO MORE campaign?

This campaign addresses domestic violence and sexual assault on our islands, in our communities and with our people. It is aligned with the purpose of the international NO MORE campaign, to end domestic and sexual violence through alliances with advocacy groups, foundations, direct service agencies and corporate partners. USVI Says NO MORE was launched through a collaboration between three local public service organizations, Women's Coalition of St. Croix, the V.I. Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Council on St. Thomas and St. Croix, and the Family Resource Center on St. Thomas.

 

Together and through focusing on EDUCATION, SUPPORT and PREVENTION, we can end domestic violence and sexual assault in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). Take the USVI Says NO MORE pledge and share this site with everyone in your circles. Make a commitment to peace, healthy relationships and healing for us all.

Education

  • changing awareness around domestic violence and sexual assault to encourage community participation in              realistic solutions

  • learning the signs of domestic violence and sharing local statistics

  • dispelling cultural and societal myths surrounding domestic violence and sexual assault; bringing attention to victim blaming and shaming

Prevention

  • encouraging discussions about healthy relationships between couples, families and in communities

  • rallying support for victims and survivors, and the programs that assist in their healing and rebuilding                                safer, independent lives

  • engaging businesses, community/civic groups, schools and government agencies to pledge support for the end of domestic and sexual violence in the USVI

Support

  • bringing attention to the importance of believing victims' and survivors' experiences

  • promoting community involvement in victims' rights advocacy

  • encouraging understanding to stop victim blaming and shaming

What's the circle about? The vanishing point is a positive and powerful symbol of NO MORE. 

 
 
  • its infinite and all-encompassing form represents the global community working together without boundaries

  • it represents a safe place where all converge to lend support to those affected

  • it is a light at the end of the tunnel, providing a view into the future free of domestic violence and sexual assault

  • it is a definitive end, like punctuation closing a statement or a thought.

      There is NO PLACE FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR SEXUAL ASSAULT ON OUR ISLANDS (OR ANYWHERE ELSE)!
