Football players from Tulane University in New Orleans posted a video online this week pledging to “help end violence against women on college campuses” and calling on others to do the same.
“These are our friends and our classmates,” says a player in the video.
“And for too long we have ignored it’s a problem rather than deal with it. But not anymore,” says another.
Promoting the hashtag #TUtakethepledge, Tulane players urge others to take the pledge themselves, to share the video or make their own.
“We did this video because we want to express the importance for awareness,” says the YouTube video description, “not just because of recent events, but from the past present, and into the future until this issue is brought to the forefront and resolved.”
