When two forces come together for good, not even the most evil of evils can stop them. Take it from Lady Gaga and former vice president Joe Biden, who have teamed up for “It’s On Us,” a new campaign to help prevent sexual assault and raise awareness about its aftermath.
The two are no strangers to standing up for what they believe in, especially when it comes to sexual assault and harassment. Back at the 2016 Academy Awards, Biden introduced Gaga for her performance of “Til It Happens To You,” in which she brought out other sexual assault survivors on stage.
For their new campaign, the two have come together to remind us that it’s on all of us to prevent sexual assault — men included.
In the video, Biden says,
Yes, Joe Biden, TELL THEM. No man has a right to a woman’s body. No man should touch a woman’s body unless it’s consensual or in self-defense.
After Biden laid down the law, Lady Gaga stepped up to explain that she knows how traumatic sexual assault can be, firsthand.
Lady Gaga reminds us that there’s always someone out there who loves and supports us.
If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, you can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE (4673). For more resources, visit RAINN, End Rape on Campus, and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.
