Mariska Hargitay said about the marathon: "I am grateful to USA for their courage, vision and generosity in joining us to say NO MORE to domestic violence and sexual assault. Being part of NO MORE from the beginning has been a great privilege. Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors - both women and men. That has to end. NO MORE confronts the myths and excuses that perpetuate domestic violence and sexual assault. I am filled with confidence and renewed determination that, together, we can and will put an end to this violence."

In addition to the current cast, former and guest "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" stars appearing in the televised spots include: Shohreh Aghdashloo, Maria Bello, Andre Braugher, Dann Florek, Marcia Gay Harden, Peter Hermann, DavidMarciano, Chris Meloni, Debra Messing, and Blair Underwood.

NO MORE is a public awareness movement focused on sexual assault prevention. Supported by the major national and local organizations working to address these urgent issues, the goal of the NO MORE PSA campaign is to help normalize the conversation and break the social stigma surrounding domestic violence and sexual assault. By increasing visibility and fostering more dialogue, NO MORE seeks to change social norms, improve public policies, and generate more resources dedicated to prevention.
