Animated Me Too PSAs Rally Survivors and Supporters

Powered by heartbreaking narration from four sexual violence survivors, these emotional films were created by a coalition of creative and production talent including Deutsch, Steelhead, Hornet, Psyop, Elastic, duotone, and We Are Royale.

Anchored on the idea of “empowerment through empathy,” the spots deliver the message “We hear you. We see you. We believe you.” to rally survivors and supporters in the fight to end sexual violence through testimonies from Terry Crews, Emily Waters, Daniela Contreras, and an anonymous survivor.

MeToo movement creator Tarana Burke: “The ‘me too.’ movement is part of a collective vision to see a world free from sexual violence. We can build this world by shifting the parts of our culture that propagate the idea that vulnerability is synonymous with permission.

“These powerful shorts place the focus back where it belongs: the dignity, humanity, and healing of all survivors. These courageous individuals are not alone and we hope that people around the world see their journeys reflected in the words of these brave individuals.”
