I really like these, but the repetition of the word 'streets' weakens the copy slightly, in my humble opinion.

Really good art, but copy could be a little more appealing, very good campain though.
(Muy buena direccion de arte, pero el copy podria ser más impactante en mi opinión, la campaña sin embargo se me hace muy buena).

Don't try to stand out of the crowd; avoid crowds altoghether.

the boy does not look like someone being violently abused.

this one is more about verbal abuse than physical in my opinion. The other one with the girl with the black eye is clearly physical abuse. This guy is clearly gay and probably either kicked out or left because of crappy parents. Physical abuse doesn't always play into it.
