Change Happens Here: NO MORE Week 2019
During the week of March 3-9, we support survivors and recognize those who are working to end domestic and sexual violence in our community. This week allows us to make the commitment to help change a culture that has accepted violence for too long. Change happens everywhere. #ChangeHappensHere!

It’s a big task, and it has to start somewhere. Why not here?” said Mr. Harshman.
MARCH 6: Over 50 came together at Rodef Shalom for Southwest PA Says NO MORE’s Annual Meeting. The meeting focused on how we can collectively advance prevention efforts.
