Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and the city of Atlanta recently launched a campaign aimed at increasing awareness and prevention of sexual assault.
The campaign, titled “Take a Stand,” offers resources to both women and men on how to guard their personal safety or get help quickly in the event of an emergency and features a short film about sexual assault and prevention as well as several public service announcements (PSAs).
The PSAs will feature celebrity advocates for rape prevention and so far, Tika Sumpter and Gabrielle Union have filmed clips.
Mayor Reed and the City of Atlanta hope that college campuses, church and community organizations across the country use the video and PSAs to educate students and members in order to have a real impact in reducing sexual assault.
