TAHOE-TRUCKEE, Calif. — The North Lake Tahoe Chamber/CVB/Resort Association recently hosted Tahoe SAFE Alliance and its “NO MORE” campaign at the monthly Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club.

NO MORE is a national movement to raise awareness and engage bystanders around ending domestic violence and sexual assault. It has one simple but powerful message: Together, we can end domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

Tahoe SAFE Alliance was named “Non-Profit of the Month” for the month of July by the North Lake Tahoe Chamber and the campaign continues through the month of October.

To participate in the campaign and help raise awareness about domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse in our community, you can take the photo pledge at Truckee Thursdays on Thursday, Aug. 27, or download the pledge sign, take a selfie and share with everyone that you know. Facebook it. Tweet it. Instagram it. Let your voice be heard.

Tahoe SAFE Alliance is celebrating its 30th year assisting nearly 20,000 community members in the region; it is their mission to end the incidence and trauma of intimate partner/domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.

Last year, SAFE Alliance provided assistance to 827 survivors and answered 575 crisis calls on the Crisis Line, and 111 volunteers donated 8,355 service hours.

Additionally, they impact our local community through violence prevention education to school children. Last year, over 4,500 community members received education on healthy relationships, teen dating violence, and bullying prevention.
