#NOMOREDay Discussion: Speaking Up Against Sexual and Domestic Violence

Wednesday March 13th marked the first ever “NO MORE Day” and the launch of the first universal symbol to end domestic violence and sexual assault. At 3PM EST, The Hotline joined a Twitter Chat hosted by NO MORE, The Joyful Heart Foundation, and Law & Order SVU’s Mariska Hargitay. The chat focused on the significance of the symbol and how it can be used, as well as methods of bystander intervention and methods of spreading awareness.

If you were involved in the Twit Chat, we’d love to hear your feedback. If not, we hope you join us next time.

On Wednesday March 13th, advocates and supporters everywhere joined together to unite their voices for the first ever No More Day. The 3PM EST TwitChat hosted by @NOMOREorg focused on the launch of the first universal symbol to end domestic violence and sexual assault.

    It is such a blessing to have safe places to go to talk about what were going thru and what we have been through. It’s the one place where we don’t feel afraid to have a voice, to be angry or disappointed. Whether your strong enough to get out of it or just get through another day, ther are people to help you get through it. Do you know why I believe that whiole heartedly? It is because, we are the ones who go through it everyday or have gone through it too. We know the pain physically, emotionally and verbally too. Who better to help and understand then the ones who have endured and survived. There is always help when you are ready and stron enough. Just know that you don’t have to do this alone and it won’t be easy, But we want you to get out as much as you want to.
