HAWAI‘I ORGANIZATIONS BAND TOGETHER TO SAY “NO MORE”
15 Hawai‘i Organizations Raises Awareness To Prevent and End Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault
HONOLULU, Hawai‘i – Four years ago, a group of 15 of Hawai‘i’s leading government and non-profit organizations and individuals launched Hawai‘i Says NO MORE, a collaboration aiming to increase awareness and visibility to prevent and end domestic violence and sexual assault.
Since then, Hawai‘i Says NO MORE has raised awareness about this violence across the state and encouraged public discussions to break the silence, shame, and stigma surrounding these issues.
Catholic Charities Hawai‘i, Child and Family Service, Hawai‘i State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Hawai‘i State Commission on the Status of Women, Hawai‘i Youth Service Network, Joyful Heart Foundation, Parents and Children Together, Department of the Attorney General, Department of Human Services, the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo Student Health and Wellness, the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa Office of Gender Equity, the University of Hawai‘i System: Office of Institutional Equity, Windward Spouse Abuse Shelter, Women Helping Women, and YWCA Oahu are the leading organizations behind Hawai‘i Says NO MORE.
Hawai‘i Says NO MORE Week, which runs March 4-11, includes efforts and events across the state. Hawai‘i Says NO MORE license plate decals will debut and become available for purchase at Satellite City Hall locations. Proceeds benefit Hawai‘i Says NO MORE Core Team Member Windward Spouse Abuse Shelter.
In honor of Hawai‘i Says NO MORE Week, Honolulu Hale and the IBM building will light their respective buildings the NO MORE blue color all week. As Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell has said: “It’s about all of us coming together as one community to say this type of violence has got to stop.”
Mayor Kirk Caldwell and Governor David Ige have formally proclaimed March 4-11 as Hawai‘i Says NO MORE Week. During the Governor’s Proclamation, Hawai‘i Says NO MORE will honor the Women’s Legislative Caucus for their important and tireless work against domestic violence and sexual assault.
Hawai‘i Says NO MORE aligns itself with the National NO MORE effort by sharing the unifying hashtag #LouderTogether.
