Raising Awareness through the Media

Recently, there has been an uprise (especially in the NFL) of sexual assaults and domestic incidents that seem to be swept under the rug or not taken seriously.

The No More Campaign created the following ad with the help of NFL players to show that this is a major issue that needs our attention.

From the Joyful Heart Foundation website:

“The NO MORE PSA campaign was spearheaded by the Joyful Heart Foundation, one of the many championing organizations behind the NO MORE movement, and was directed by actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay, the Foundation’s President and Founder, in her directorial debut.”
