Participants sought for state domestic violence study


Rhode Islanders are invited to participate in a survey throughout the entire month of August to gauge statewide attitudes toward domestic violence. One hundred fifty dollars in cash prizes will be awarded each week, for a total of $600 in prizes.

On behalf of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV), professional research and evaluation firm, McClanahan Associates, Inc. (MAI), is seeking individuals across the state of Rhode Island to participate in an online survey to gauge statewide attitudes toward domestic violence. The survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete and is anonymous (no link will be made between individuals' names and responses).

All those who complete the online survey will be entered into a weekly raffle for the chance to receive a $50 Amazon gift card. There will be three randomly selected winners each week, for a total of 12 winners. The survey is available in English and in Spanish.

For decades, the RICADV has worked to shape the media landscape to empower domestic violence survivors and to counter social acceptance of domestic violence in order to prevent it. This survey is an opportunity for RICADV to learn about current community attitudes toward domestic violence across the state of Rhode Island.

Access the survey online at between Aug. 1 and Aug. 31. To learn more about this research study, contact Kelly Piccinino at (267) 457-4600, ext. 105, or email

Maybe DPW workers Cameron Whittaker and Scott Small can volunteer. It seems that they enjoy beating up his women and harassing members of the public.


Whittaker, Cameron
