I saw Mariska Hargitay on Katie Couric’s talk show recently. In addition to talking about her 14-year run as Olivia Benson on Law & Order: SVU, the actress talked about her organization – No More. Now that I’ve seen the logo, I often see it in the background on NBC’s long-running show.
I applaud Ms. Hargitay for creating this organization after receiving thousands of letters from victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. I also applaud NBC for promoting the organization so regularly, if subtly. It’s long past time that victims of abuse ceased to be victims of the system that is supposed to protect them.
In addition to watching the PSA embedded below, I urge you to see related No More, VAWA and Joyful Heart Foundation videos on YouTube.
