Learn About the Organizations Behind No More

In support of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, USA is airing a NO MORE Excuses Law & Order: SVU marathon on Sunday, October 19th. The marathon features a new special call to action by Vice President Joe Biden and Mariska Hargitay to get involved to help end domestic violence and sexual assault.

Through the NO MORE Excuses marathon, USA is saying NO MORE while bringing you some of our favorite episodes of Law & Order: SVU that help spark an important conversation about how all of us can help end domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse.

Look out for the star-studded NO MORE ads throughout the marathon and special messages from the SVU cast.

The marathon is the third NO MORE Excuses marathon airing on USA as part of an ongoing partnership with the Joyful Heart Foundation and NO MORE campaign, a unifying public awareness and engagement campaign aligned with hundreds of national and local organizations working to end domestic violence and sexual assault.
