In a new Public Service Announcement, Vice President Joe Biden, along with various male actors, are speaking out against campus rape.

On Tuesday, the White House announced a new campaign, “1 is 2 Many,” along with a task force to protect college students from sexual assault.

According to the White House press release, 1 in 5 women is sexually assaulted while in college, and young women, ages 16 to 24, experience the highest rates of sexual violence at the hands of someone they know.

Actor Dulé Hill, who is featured in the PSA, said: “One sexual assault is one too many. My desire for this PSA is that it will heighten awareness and in turn be a catalyst for more prevention.”
