The #MeToo movement sparked a conversation hundreds of years in the making. While that specific hashtag seemed to fizzle out, some of the country’s biggest brands are now jumping on the bandwagon to raise awareness. Adidas and Facebook are just two of the biggest names that condemn sex violence in school. But where they fall short, individuals like you now have a voice in this fight. Read on to find out how.
ADIDAS LEARNS FROM RUTGERS ABOUT SEX VIOLENCE IN SCHOOL
If Adidas, Nike or any other brand want to help in the fight against sex violence in school, they should listen to Rutgers University. The school has a forward-thinking, Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance program. Here, survivors of sex violence can share their experiences and help prevent future generations from going through the same thing. Every year, Rutgers takes 15,000 incoming students and teaches them how to recognize these horrid acts before they even occur. Hopefully, interactive lessons like this help to shift a culture that’s spiraling out of control.
ADIDAS NEEDS TO TAKE CHARGE REGARDING SEX VIOLENCE IN SCHOOL
This is obviously a serious movement. However, if Adidas really wants to boost their numbers while simultaneously helping a good cause, they should take charge on this issue. The last thing they want to do is end up like Facebook. Not only is Facebook aware of sex violence in school and their platform, but they downright refuse to do anything about it. Therefore, Adidas has a prime opportunity to use their resources in a positive manner while boosting their public image. Of course, we can’t rely too much on corporate America to help us. Hence, it might help to put matters into the hands of the people.
YOU AND ADIDAS CAN STOP SEX VIOLENCE IN SCHOOL
We live in a horrible time for sex violence in school. However, we also live in a wonderful time for technology. With technology like the internet, blockchain, and cryptocurrency, we are no longer so reliant on government institutions to help us. For example, we can raise money on crowdfunding platforms like YouToken, create our very own brand and start a movement from the ground up. Furthermore, this is all decentralized without any major interference. Why tell you all this? Because if we don’t do things ourselves, nothing will change. So let’s embrace this new technology and make a difference in the world.
