Public Service Announcement on Family Violence

In an effort to bring the problem of family and conjugal violence to a wider audience, the Shield of Athena co-produced an award-winning public service announcement (PSA), "Violence Hurts Us All", with Rogers CFMT, Canada’s largest multilingual television station. The PSA was broadcast in 14 languages and distributed to 30 ethnic broadcasters and specialty channels across Canada. In the nine months alone following production in 2002, the PSA was aired 1,500 times and seen by an estimated 3 million viewers. The PSA is still being aired in many languages in Montreal on CJNT.
