Guam - Violent acts often make headline news, but according to Guam Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Family Violence executive director Cynthia Cabot, it's not that crime is on the rise - it's more victims are coming forward and reporting the violent acts.

As the 2013 Regional Summit rounded out today, Cabot says it was overwhelming to see such a massive turnout at the annual event themed "No More." "No More is actually a national campaign that we have taken on as well to look at standing up and we want to continue with this education campaign that we also want to say no more we will not stand for the violence so we are coming together to look at ways we can end the violence," she explained.

This year's summit highlighted sexual assault, domestic violence, and women's awarness on guam and in the region.
