As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of this program, we are bringing back some of our PSAs from previous decades. Join us as we reflect back on the many players and managers who took a public stand against domestic violence and chose to promote healthy, respectful relationships. Note how our messaging has really shifted over the years! We’ve moved from stating what we’re against: “I will not strike, I will not hit … a woman;” to talking about what we are for: “Choose respect.” There has indeed been a culture shift in the public conversation about domestic & sexual violence over the past 25 years!
