The Tampa Bay Rays have added some life back into their offensive, as Evan Longoria returned into the lineup after missing most of the season with a hamstring injury. He has been the face of the Rays since his Rookie of the Year campaign in 2008 and has been putting up monster numbers ever since. Being one of the games top young players, he has scored many endorsements along the way including Gilette, Red Bull, New Era, MLB2K10 and even a spot on a PSA for WhiteHouse.gov.
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden join with Eli Manning, Jeremy Lin, Jimmy Rollins, Evan, David Beckham, Joe Torre and Andy Katz in this PSA to raise awareness about dating violence. Despite the significant progress made in reducing violence against women, young women continue to face the highest rates of dating violence and sexual assault. In the last year, one in 10 teens has reported being physically hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend. One in five young women has been sexually assaulted while in college.
In response to these alarming statistics, Vice President Biden launched the 1is2many campaign last year. This campaign focuses his longstanding commitment to reducing violence against women specifically on teens and young women ages 16-24. By targeting the importance of changing attitudes that lead to violence, and educating the public on the realities of abuse, this Administration is leading the way to stop violence against women before it begins.
