%

About 64% of Americans say that talking more about domestic violence and sexual assault would make it easier to help someone. Our conversation begins here.
Memphis police respond to more than 40 domestic-violence calls each day. In fact, more than half of all violent crime in Memphis is classified as domestic violence.
Local statistics hover around one reported case of forcible rape each day, but experts suggest that the numbers could be much higher for unreported sexual assaults.
And the problem is communitywide. To highlight that fact, we created a series of PSAs that will run on local TV stations and can be shared across social channels. These join the national spots created by the Joyful Heart Foundation in partnership with NO MORE.

Handy Palm Cards

Memphis Says NO MORE has produced “palm cards” that hold a lot of information on resources where victims can receive help.

They fold in half to the size of a business card — small enough to keep in a pocket or purse.

 To receive a supply of the printed cards, while they last, contact Deborah Clubb at dclubb@memphiswomen.org /(901) 378-3866.
*A single card may also be printed, cut and used from these images.
You are not alone. Get help now.
If you have been the victim of a sexual assault, please call the Rape Crisis Center at (901) 222-4350.

If you are currently experiencing domestic violence, please call the Memphis Police Department at (901) 636-3741 or the Family Safety Center of Memphis and Shelby County at (901) 222-4400.

About Us

Led by the Memphis Sexual Assault Kit Task Force, the Memphis Says NO MORE campaign began in spring 2015. We seek to bring awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault in an attempt to change both the public dialogue and the amount of gender violence in our city.

The Memphis Sexual Assault Kit Task Force began in December 2013. Memphis Mayor A C Wharton brought members together from multiple city, state, county and community entities to resolve a backlog of stored rape kits and create ways to ensure that all new rape kits are tested promptly.

Since its inception, the task force has raised $6 million and had 6,586 kits analyzed or shipped to labs. Additionally, more than 100 requests for indictment have been issued and 98 new suspects have been identified, including 26 believed to be offenders with multiple victims. We will not rest until every kit is tested, every case is closed, every policy and procedure has been improved, and every service for victims and survivors is adequate to the need.

Memphis Says NO MORE is one of dozens of state and locally led coalitions championing the NO MORE movement in their communities. Learn more about the national NO MORE campaign.
