“Take A Stand” and say “NO MORE” for Domestic Violence Awareness Month


October sets the stage for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and spotlights opportunities to raise awareness ,  honor survivors, support their causes, and advocate for change. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence asks everyone to take a stand and remind  “the nation that there are still countless people–victims and survivors, their children and families, their friends and family, their communities–impacted by domestic violence.” In collaboration with the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, and Cal OES (Governor’s Office of Emergency Services), CALCASA promotes the NO MORE Campaign. NO MORE aims to raise public awareness and engagement around ending domestic violence and sexual assault. This month (and any other month) allies can be a part of the act, they can help fund local programs in the fight against domestic violence and sexual assault by purchasing a No MORE License Plate. CALCASA stands solidarity with the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, and a shared vision for a California free from domestic violence.
