White Ribbon, an advocacy group, recently launched a new campaign against domestic violence amid COVID-19 called 'Day After Day.' The new public service announced was directed by Oscar-nominated director Huber Davis and hopes to speak to men at-risk or using gender-based violence as a response to the stresses of the pandemic.
“The story we tell in the PSA is, unfortunately, an accurate portrayal of the ways some men are using violence against their partner, family members or within the community, in reaction to the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Humberto Carolo, Executive Director, White Ribbon. “The rise in reports of domestic abuse since lockdowns began is staggering. It was critical we speak directly to men who are using violence, and to all men, to remind them they are not alone, that they must change their behavior, and that we can help guide them towards healthier masculinities.”
