¡No te quedes en la banca!

Octubre es el Mes Contra la Violencia Doméstica.

Nuestra nueva campaña para crear conciencia pública muestra a los estudiantes atletas de Universidad de Rhode Island, hablando en contra de la violencia doméstica y pidiendo a los habitantes de Rhode Island que hagan lo mismo.

La versión en español de esta campaña puede ser vista en los buses y vallas publicitarias a lo largo y ancho del estado,  así como también puede ser escuchada a través de los anuncios radiales para el servicio público en Latina 100.3 FM.

La violencia doméstica nos impacta a todos y necesitamos de todos unidos para ponerle un fin. ¿Qué harás para “no quedarte en la banca?” ¿Cómo contribuirás a ganar el partido?
