Katia Santiago-Taylor, BARCC: "Yo creo que mucha gente está preocupada, está yendo a un trabajo a otro, o a la escuela y están pensando en ellos, y la campaña lo que quiere decir es Mira, estate pendiente, a mejor hay alguien que necesita ayuda, dice algo, dejalo saber a alguien, trata de ayudar a la persona que está haciendo acosada. (El acoso sexual) Pasa, y queremos prevenirlo y queremos crear conocimiento publico que no es aceptable, no es un comportamiento aceptable y uno puede decir algo para prevenirlo."
