Soccer star David Beckham, New York Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin, and New York Giants quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning are just a few of the male celebrities who condemn violence against women.

They – along with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, baseball’s Joe Torre and others – star in a new White House-produced public service announcement condemning violence against women.

The minute-long message, which also features Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays, Jimmy Rollins of the Philadelphia Phillies and ESPN correspondent Andy Katz, will air this summer on the ESPN Networks, the Fox Sports Networks, MLB Network and NFL Network, the White House said in a statement.

“Due to the fact that young women today ages 16 to 24 experience the highest rates of violence at the hands of someone they know, the PSA’s target audience is men of this same age group,” according to the White House.

The PSA is part of the “1 is 2 Many” initiative that Biden launched last year.
