Four University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa head coaches are addressing the issue of domestic violence in a new public service announcement (PSA) encouraging everyone to, “See something, say something.” The PSA features football head coach Nick Rolovich, women’s basketball head coach Laura Beeman, men’s basketball head coach Eran Ganot and women’s soccer head coach Michele Nagamine. It began airing in September on Hawaii News Now.

The UH Mānoa Athletics department, Hawaii News Now and the Domestic Violence Action Center partnered to produce the 30-second spot.

“The UH coaches are important role models for the community, the media plays an incomparable role in educating viewers about significant community problems, and the Domestic Violence Action Center is dedicated to providing meaningful, unduplicated support to survivors and island families,” said Nanci Kreidman, Domestic Violence Action Center chief executive officer. “Together we make a team of messengers who can light the way for island families.”

The PSA seeks to advance the understanding, compassion and willingness to address the problem of domestic violence, which is complex and vast.
