David Beckham, Eli Manning and Jeremy Lin are among several athletes who joined the star-studded anti-domestic violence ad released by the White House Thursday.
The “1 Is 2 Many” campaign aims to stop violence against women, especially young women.
“In the last year, one in 10 teens have reported being physically hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend,” the campaign website reported. “One in five young women have been sexually assaulted while they’re in college.”
Former Yankees manager Joe Torre got personal in the ad. “Growing up, I was ashamed and afraid of my father when he abused my mum,” he said.
