JOYFUL HEART LAUNCHES NEW HAWAIʻI SAYS NO MORE PSA CAMPAIGN 

The Joyful Heart Foundation launches new Hawai‘i Says NO MORE PSA Campaign featuring local talent.

 

 

 

 

HONOLULU, Hawai‘i – Locally and nationally recognized musicians, television personalities, athletes, cultural practitioners, and community leaders have joined forces to raise much-needed visibility and awareness about the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault across the state in a dramatic new series of public service announcements released today by the Joyful Heart Foundation. The Hawai‘i Says NO MORE PSA campaign was directed by Mariska Hargitay, produced by Joyful Heart in partnership with Hawaii News Now, as well as creative partners Wall-to-Wall Studios, Tony Novak-Clifford, and Viacom. 

 

Actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay founded the Joyful Heart Foundation in 2004 in Kailua-Kona to help survivors of this violence heal and reclaim the joy in their lives. Statistics underscore the urgent need for the PSA campaign, revealing that every day in our state over 500 victims seek support from domestic violence programs. 1 in 7 women in Hawai‘i are survivors of sexual assault, that’s 67,000 women.

About Hawai‘i Says NO MORE | www.hawaiisaysnomore.org

 

Hawaiʻi Says NO MORE is the local version of the national public awareness and engagement campaign focused on ending domestic violence and sexual assault. Fifteen organizations, representing leaders from the state’s domestic violence and sexual assault programs, as well as key government offices and community leaders, came together in January 2014 to develop a local initiative that launched in 2015. Hawaiʻi Says NO MORE challenges the attitudes and behaviors that lead to this violence and promotes local values that reflect aloha, respect and our connections through 'ohana.
