NO MORE: Excuses for Inaction

More than 40 celebrities and public figures appear in the ads, which are designed specifically to urge bystanders to get involved. In the previous post you can watch the video of this great No More campaign.

Below are some examples of the excuses for inaction that the No More campaign highlights:

NO MORE: “He comes from such a good family.”no more

NO MORE: “She was flirting with him.”

NO MORE: “It’s none of my business.”

NO MORE: “Why didn’t she tell anyone?”

NO MORE: “She seems fine to me.”

NO MORE: “I’m sure they will work it out.”

NO MORE: “Boys will be boys.”

NO More: “Well, what was she wearing?”

NO More: “Hey, he said he was sorry.”

NO MORE: “But he goes to my church.”

NO MORE: “Well, he was drunk.”

NO MORE: “She was asking for it.”

NO MORE: But he’s such a nice guy.”

NO MORE: “It’s just a misunderstanding.”

NO MORE: “She’s too smart to let that happen.”

Campaigns like this one focusing on bystander intervention are crucial, as they break this pattern by helping us as a society to move away from individual framework that fosters victim-blaming, to a community that fosters connection and intervention. Please do your part get involved, everybody knows someone that is suffering. Become a crusader for bystanders NO MORE.
