Terry Crews and Other Sexual Violence Survivors Narrate New ‘Me Too’ Videos

The me too Movement, an advocacy organization that fights sexual violence and harassment, released four short videos on Monday featuring survivors telling their stories.

The animated videos — public service announcements that are all about a minute or two long — are each narrated by a survivor of sexual violence as elegant illustrations accompany their voices. (The survivors are not shown.)

Words spoken by the narrators are also drawn on screen: “It wasn’t my fault.” “Speak out. “Hope.” Each video ends with a message to other survivors: “We hear you. We see you. We believe you.”

Two of the videos are narrated by women, Emily Waters and Daniela Contreras; Ms. Contreras speaks in Spanish. The others are narrated by men; one is an anonymous 31-year-old and the other is the actor and former football player Terry Crews.

After the initial articles about Harvey Weinstein were published in 2017, Mr. Crews accused Adam Venit, an executive at a prominent talent agency, of having groped him. (Mr. Crews refers to the articles in his video, but Mr. Weinstein’s name is bleeped out as if it were a curse.) Mr. Venit eventually resigned and wrote a letter to Mr. Crews asking for his forgiveness.
