1 in 10 teens will be hurt on purpose by someone they are dating. President Obama and Vice President Biden have been working to raise awareness for the issue of dating violence and have just released a star-packed PSA to assist in their cause.

Soccer star David Beckham, New York Knicks phenomenon Jeremy Lin, Tampa Bay Rays star Evan Longoria and New York Giants quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning are just a few of the male celebrities who condemn violence against women.

The message and tone of the 60 second long video is targeted to men, asking for their help to end the violence and telling them to speak up. The PSA will air this summer on the ESPN Networks, the Fox Sports Networks, MLB Network and NFL Network, the White House said in a statement.

“Due to the fact that young women today ages 16 to 24 experience the highest rates of violence at the hands of someone they know, the PSA’s target audience is men of this same age group,” according to the White House.

The PSA is part of the 1 is 2 Many initiative that Biden launched last year to help end dating violence and violence against women. The campaign uses current technology and social networks to help spread the message.
