Last night, some of the world's most talented and influential artists came together in Los Angeles to celebrate last year's most notable achievements in music at the 2015 GRAMMY awards. Along with the awards and performances, the night included an important appeal message from President Obama to all present: It's on us to stop domestic violence and sexual assault.

All of us have the power to set an example. Take the "It's On Us" pledge at to learn how you can help combat this problem by becoming part of the solution.
