The Women's and Children's Alliance in Boise is participating in "No More Week" by starting conversations at various coffee shops in the Treasure Valley. Wednesday, they were at Black Rock Coffee Bar in Boise.   
 
It's all an effort to raise awareness about domestic abuse, violence, and sexual assault. The Women's and Children's Alliance says in 2016, there were more than 5,000 9-1-1 calls related to domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse in Ada County alone. 
 
As a part of the campaign, they are encouraging people to fill out "No More" signs and engage on social media. 
 
"We're taking these signs with us at every coffee shop. We have blank signs on our website and we are sharing these signs on our social media and our Facebook and we encourage people to print these, fill them out um, take photos and share their reasons for saying no more," said Christine Davis, Women's and Children's Alliance. 
 
Thursday, the Women's and Children's Alliance will be at Thomas Hammer Coffee and on Friday, they will be at Dawson Taylor in downtown Boise. Both will be from seven to ten a.m.
