Campaign Against Teen Dating Abuse Launched With Chris And Rihanna PSA


The teen organization Do Something has launched the 1 in 3 Campaign to raise awareness about dating violence. As part of the effort they’ve created a PSA that graphically reenacts the Chris Brown/Rihanna assault.

In the video at left, actors depict what happened inside Chris Brown’s car as the police report is read in a voiceover (interestingly both “Chris” and “Rihanna” are white). Last week the group began offering free bracelets on their website to promote dating abuse awareness by “wearing the statistics.” The bracelets come in packs of three: one blue, two black to represent that one in three teens are abused in a relationship. The group reports that they’ve had 25,000 requests for the bracelets so far. []
