“NO MORE Excuses” for Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault
The NO MORE Public Service Announcement (PSA) Campaign, spearheaded by the Joyful Heart Foundation in partnership with NO MORE launched in September 2013. Directed by actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay, the campaign features more than 75 celebrities, public figures and athletes. Beginning with the “NO MORE Excuses” and “Anthem” series of print and video ads, which highlight the myths and excuses that create misplaced blame on survivors and allow perpetrators to evade accountability for their crimes, the PSAs call on bystanders to end the excuses and inaction on these issues.
