PDXsaysNoMore.org brings the message of “No More Domestic Violence and Sexual Assualt” to the Portland Metro Area, in solidarity with the national movement behind the No More campaign. PDX Says No More is a collaborative campaign organized by agencies that serve survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington Counties.
The short-term and intermediate goals of the PDX Says No More campaign include:
- Increased awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault
- Increased awareness of services available to victims and survivors
- Increased bystander intervention
We believe these goals can be achieved by challenging the social norms about men and women that contribute to domestic and sexual violence, educating the public about the dynamics and patterns of abuse that are understood by “experts” but largely misunderstood by the general public, and shifting norms about how bystanders should intervene.
