The goal of the “Bricks in the Wall” music video has been to increase general awareness of domestic violence regardless of social and economic background, ethnicity, or race. Through worldwide distribution via the internet, the music video educates the general public on the more subtle implications and misunderstood concepts of the problem including verbal and emotional abuse as well as physical abuse not directed at the victim. In order to provide further outreach, the music video provides viewers with the National Domestic Violence Hotline phone number. As a tool to educate youth about behavior that is not usually recognized as domestic violence, The “Bricks in the Wall” music video has been used as an integral part of the SAFE through the Arts program for middle school students in New York State.
