We’ve got some exciting news: you can now get your own UK SAYS NO MORE pin!
What does the pin mean?
As described by NO MORE:
“The signature blue vanishing point originated from the concept of a zero – as in zero incidences of domestic violence and sexual assault. The smaller, inner circle of the vanishing point symbolizes moving toward our end goal when “Together we can end domestic violence and sexual assault.”
What was the genesis of the NO MORE symbol?
“The NO MORE symbol has been in the making since 2009. It was developed because despite the significant progress that has been made in raising awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault, these pervasive issues remain hidden and on the margins of public concern. All the major domestic violence and sexual assault organizations in the country agreed that a new, overarching symbol, uniting all people working to end these problems could have a dramatic impact on the public’s awareness. They all support NO MORE.
In order to create the symbol, representatives from the domestic violence and sexual assault field and communications professionals working to raise awareness for these issues, teamed up with some of the top marketing and branding minds in the country. Together they developed the NO MORE symbol which was then tested with a range of audiences including young people and men. NO MORE received support from all demographics in the country. The majority of respondents thought it was memorable and said that the symbol was needed and important.”
