Law & Order star Mariska Hargitay, founder of Joyful Heart Foundation in 2004 to help sexual assault survivors heal, has recruited celebrities to help with her new campaign to combat sexual violence using the slogan No More. I like Mariska, I like Law and Order … The Campaign is classic Celebrity-Testimonial story with big Headlines. It works!
“Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors – both women and men,’ Mariska said in a statement.
‘That has to end. By confronting the myths and excuses we rely on to avoid ending domestic violence and sexual assault,
‘NO MORE fills me with confidence and renewed determination that we will put an end to the violence.” source: dailymail.co.uk
“Our print campaign, “NO MORE Excuses,” launched in September 2013, was designed to help dispel many of the most common and pervasive myths about sexual assault and domestic violence and to encourage an open dialogue about these important issues. We recognize that male survivors are also met with persistent and harmful responses: That sexual abuse can’t happen to guys. That they just need to get over it. That guys wouldn’t “let” that happen to them. So in March 2014, celebrating the one-year anniversary of NO MORE, Joyful Heart, in partnership with 1in6, a leading organization that provides support and information to adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse, released a series of new print PSA ads to address the myths and excuses that male survivors often hear.” Source: Joyful Heart Foundation.
