WATKINS GLEN, NYThe First Step Victim Services Department of Catholic Charities is hosting an awareness event on Tuesday, March 10 from 10am-3pm at their office, 607 N. Franklin Street, Watkins Glen. This event is in conjunction with NO MORE Week.

NO MORE Week is a national effort to engage every individual, organization, or corporation to say NO MORE to domestic violence and sexual assault and to make domestic violence and sexual assault awareness and prevention a priority year-round.

64% of Americans say if we talk more about domestic violence and sexual assault, it would make it easier to help someone. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experience violence from their partners in their lifetimes. This is why it is so important to make awareness a priority year-round. Please join us in saying NO MORE to domestic violence and sexual assault.

NOMORE WeekCommunity participants are encouraged to drop in any time between 10am and 3pm. There will be a photo station where you can make your own NO MORE statement. Light refreshments will be provided and there will be a drawing to win a prize for participation. This event is free to the public.

If you can’t make it to the office on Tuesday, you can still participate. Share your NO MORE statement by using #NOMOREWEEK on social media. Upload a picture telling us how you’re saying NO MORE when it comes to domestic violence & sexual assault.
