Gratitude and Behind the Scenes

At Joyful Heart, we talk a lot about the community we envision. We try to articulate a community where people have the courage to “stand up for these issues.” Creating this PSA campaign and bringing it to life has been one of our greatest accomplishments and our deep privilege.

"What we saw at our shoots, brave and strong and authentic person after person, was people standing up for each other—for the people they love, for their partners, wives, husbands, children, friends, mothers and fathers, for people they've never met, for themselves."

- Mariska Hargitay

We are proud to play a leading role in the NO MORE movement. Our contribution of the NO MORE PSA Campaign was years in the making and a true labor of love. Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude to the genius creative team, crew, cast, countless volunteers and the hundreds of organizations that are part of the NO MORE movement who carry our message far and wide.

This campaign has benefited tremendously from the generosity of so many people. In total, more than 150 people were involved in the creative development, production and distribution of the campaign. Dozens of companies donated funds, resources and placement opportunities. Altogether, this work represents millions of dollars of donated time and talent. 

For every contribution—large and small—we offer our boundless gratitude.
