This week, the NO MORE campaign against domestic violence and sexual assault is celebrating its first anniversary. The public awareness campaign has focused its efforts over its inaugural year on gaining support with Americans nationwide, sparking new conversations about these problems and moving this cause higher on the public agenda.
While domestic violence and sexual assault are historically two issues that corporations have shied away from addressing, this week, many major corporations pledged millions of dollars in new commitments. You can read more about how these private sector organizations are showing their support in the official press release.
Earlier this week, advocacy groups and corporate leaders – including Jack Cochran, MD, executive director of The Permanente Federation, on behalf of Kaiser Permanente – met with White House officials, including representatives from the White House Council on Women and Girls, to discuss the important role that all stakeholders – including the private sector – can play in supporting domestic violence and sexual assault programs.
