This power video demonstrates easy ways to look out for each other and speak up.
This video is heart stopping. It shows just how all of us are complicit in the vicious cycle that is sexual assault. Each one of us have a role in these stories that happen every single day, and this video shows just how simple it is to do the right thing and speak up.
As the video shows, it’s actually not that complicated. All it takes is a little bit of attention by looking out for the friends you came with or watching for signs to prevent sexual assault from happening.
I think this is extremely powerful because no one in this video had to make a long speech. They just had to have the courage to say something.
If you live in New Zealand, the website behind this video, WhoAreYou.co.nz, has huge list of 24/7 hotlines and local organizations actively working in sexual violence crisis and support services in your area. In 2013 they will also be sending out kits with this short film to show to a discussion group.
We need to share this message like crazy.
You CAN change the story.
