In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM), NO MORE has teamed with 1in6 to create this moving public service announcement (PSA). The video below reveals an important truth about survivors of sexual violence. Every survivor – regardless of their identity – deserves compassion, a platform, and an opportunity to share their experiences.
ABOUT THIS PSA
NO MORE is proud to join 1in6 in acknowledging the realities of sexual violence and its impact on survivors. This PSA, funded in part by the NFL, is the first of its kind in transforming sexual abuse experienced by certain populations from a stigmatized, private problem into an actionable community issue.
1in6 is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help men who have had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences live healthier, happier lives. 1in6 also serves family members, friends, partners, and professionals by providing information and support resources on the web and in the community. In the 11 years since it was founded, 1in6 has become a leading voice in the anti-sexual violence movement, and has partnered with organizations and campaigns such as the Joyful Heart Foundation, NO MORE, RAINN, Men & Healing (Canada), Living Well (Australia), and Survivors Manchester (UK). In 2017, almost 400,000 visitors turned to the 1in6 website for support. For more information, visit 1in6.org.
Share this video to amplify the voices of those who have experienced sexual violence, and to say NO MORE to all forms of abuse, both during SAAM and beyond.
