Join the Pirates and the Phillies in taking a stand against domestic violence by taking the pledge!
PCADV has announced their fall ad campaign to raise domestic violence awareness, and that’s great news for all of you baseball fans out there! The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Phillies have created public service announcements (PSAs) to take a stand against domestic violence.
Featuring athletes such as Andrew McCutchen, Josh Harrison and Neil Walker from the Pirates, as well as Cody Asche from the Phillies, PA baseball is declaring their intolerance of domestic violence and their expectation of bystander intervention. They are saying NO MORE to such acts as disrespecting women, stalking, “looking the other way” and making excuses.
Just in time for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, both teams’ PSAs will air across Pennsylvania in movie theaters, on sports-related TV programming and on radio stations during September and October.
Each year, more than 85,000 Pennsylvanians seek assistance from PCADV and its 60 member programs. Preventing domestic violence and sexual assault starts with awareness, and who better to spread awareness than our local role models?
