In a new video for the It’s On Us campaign, Biden and Gaga remind viewers of their responsibility to intervene when they see abuse. They also encourage survivors of sexual assault to reach out for support.
“I am a sexual assault survivor,” Gaga says. “I know the effects, the aftermath, the trauma ― psychological, physical, mental. It can be terrifying waking up every day feeling unsafe in your own body.”
Biden and former President Barack Obama launched the “It’s On Us” campaign in 2014 to end sexual assault on college campuses.
The new PSA was released after multiple women accused famed Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault, including rape. The allegations resulted in Weinstein being fired from his eponymous production company and entering an Arizona sex rehab facility for one week.
