No Excuses is a series of 11 animated spots designed to prevent domestic violence. The campaign was launched at the United Nations in April, 2011. Targeted squarely at the abuser, the animated campaign consists of 11 animated spots to be ultimately versioned into 73 languages, enabling a potential reach of 85% of the world’s population in their own language.
Combining animation and humor the series consists of memorable messages to prevent: cultural justifications of violence, violence against women, the perceived right of men to commit violence, sexual abuse of women, rape, escalation of abuse into violence, the inter-generational cycle of violence, violence by mothers against children, violence by fathers against children and verbal abuse of children and the elderly. In addition, one spot was created to prevent rape by soldiers. Currently in production (versioning) and distribution.
The spots can be seen in multiple languages on the United Nations Channel on YouTube.
