This "UAA says NO MORE" video PSA was created as part of the "UAA Says No More" campaign launched during the Fall 2013 semester. This effort originated in the degree capstone project for Simona Gerdts and Kristen Speyerer, Justice majors/Legal Studies minors, who received their BAs in Justice in May 2014. The UAA video PSA features students, faculty, and staff.

As part of the project, they worked to co-brand the campaign with the "NO MORE" national campaign  — a nationwide effort to increase greater awareness and action to end domestic violence and sexual assault.

The video production and editing were donated by Eric Baldwin, Media Technician, UAA Academic Innovations & ELearning.

Following their graduation, Simona and Kristen have continued to be involved in this important effort. UAA Says NO MORE has transitioned to a statewide organization. Learn more about the NO MORE AK campaign and the UAA NO MORE Alliance, a student club.

NO MORE PSAs have been filmed by numerous organizations around the country, including recently by the National Football League (NFL). The "UAA says NO MORE" PSA has been featured on the national NO MORE website.
