  • The  Hendricks County Coalition Against Domestic Violence has created eight, 30 second, PSAs that feature Hendricks County residents saying “NO MORE” to common excuses we use to perpetuate domestic violence and sexual assault.  Many of our stars are students from Hendricks County Schools.  The video sends a clear message that abuse is not tolerated in our community.  http://www.hccadv.org/
