Contra Costa Says NO MORE

Take the "No More"
Challenge

NO MORE is a unifying symbol and nationwide campaign to raise public awareness and engage everyone in the effort to end domestic violence and sexual assault.  Contra Costa County, through its Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence Initiative, is partnering with community leaders, sports figures and high school students to send the NO MORE message into our schools and beyond.

Prevention is Possible
Sexual violence affects people of all genders, ages, races, religions, incomes, abilities, professions, ethnicity, and sexual orientations.
  • Nearly 1 in 5 women in the United States have experienced rape or attempted rape some time in their lives, and 1 in 71 men have experienced rape or attempted rape (Black et al., 2011).
  • Nearly 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men have experienced sexual violence victimization other than rape at some point in their lifetime (Black et al., 2011).

Beyond the suffering for victims, families and communities, sexual violence also has financial costs. These include medical, mental health, social and emergency services, insurance, legal costs, and lost productivity,wages, and fringe benefits. Rape is the most costly of all crimes to its victims, with total estimated costs at $127 billion a year (excluding the cost of child sexual abuse).

SB1193 requires specified businesses and other establishments, as of April 1, 2013, to post a notice informing the public and victims of human trafficking of telephone hotline numbers to seek help or report unlawful activity.
