WASHINGTON (June 29, 2000) -- The Catholic Communication Campaign will launch in July two new radio public service ads: It's My Fault and Invite the Neighbor.
The PSAs are a continuation of the CCC's Spanish-language family support PSA campaign: "The United Family Gives Hope for Life." The campaign produces and distributes short radio stories that inspire and support the Latino community.
It's My Fault depicts a victim of domestic violence accepting the help of her brother.
Invite the Neighbor portrays a young girl inviting an elderly neighbor who lives alone to come to celebrate her birthday.
Both were produced for the CCC by Accent Media of McLean Virginia.
Gabriela Hernandez, program director at station KXLM in Oxnard, California, praised the PSA campaign, saying, "The subjects that are dealt with are very appropriate for Hispanics. They really make us think about important aspects of family life."
Ramon Rodriguez, Executive Producer of the series, added that "we hope that these two new announcements will be received by our Latino community as well as the previous ones were. Through them we underline the importance of solidarity and love of neighbor, important values that should be emphasized in the world we live in today."
Other CCC efforts include documentaries and videos for home use, including the Spanish-language video, Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The CCC also supports two toll free numbers, 1-800-311-4CCC, a movie review line which provides brief reviews of current movies evaluated by the U.S. Bishops´ Office for Film and Broadcasting; and 1-800-MASSTIMES, which provides Mass schedules in different cities throughout the country.
