NoToRape.com – “Let’s get heard.” [Thanks Jolene!]

Message from the No To Rape team:
No To Rape’s latest film ad, “Let’s Get Heard”, features Singaporeans and residents from a variety of walks of life answering the question, “If you could say ‘no’ to something, what would you say?” You might recognise some familiar faces among those saying “no” to everything from bad breath to censorship and more! You can find the video on our blog: http://www.NoToRape.com/Blog

No To Rape sees this video as encouraging everyone in Singapore to take a stand for what they believe in. Of course, we also believe there’s something else everyone should be encouraged to say ‘No’ to, and that’s rape. So as the petition drive enters its final month, we’re saying to Singapore: let’s get heard!
