Mayor Kirk Caldwell is proclaiming March 3 through March 9 as Hawai'i Says NO MORE week in the City and County of Honolulu.

“It can never be said too often nor too loudly domestic violence and sexual assault will not be tolerated in our community,” Mayor Caldwell said. “The Hale will be illuminated blue for a week, but it’s up to all of us to create awareness around this issue year round.” 

Four years ago, 15 of Hawai'i's leading government and non-profit organizations came together to launch Hawai'i Says NO MORE, a collaboration of individuals, programs, and organizations throughout Hawai'i who are taking action to increase awareness and visibility to prevent and end domestic violence and sexual assault.

Hawai'i Says NO MORE Week includes efforts and events across the state. In honor of Hawai'i Says NO MORE week, Honolulu Hale will be lit in the NO MORE blue color for the entire week. Meanwhile, a proclamation ceremony with Hawai'i Says NO MORE week representatives has been scheduled for Thursday, March 7 at 2:30 p.m. in Mayor Caldwell’s office.
