Just before 2 pm EDT, the New York City Police Department called via Twitter for photos of citizens with its officers. Almost immediately the campaign #myNYPD seemed to backfire, as users flooded the hashtag with photos decrying alleged police brutality.
Not alleged! Actually true.
The Clothesline Project - “Walk in her shoes” / Strength Against Violence
Today I covered a student run event at Fullerton College in Southern California. The purpose of the event is to spread awareness of domestic violence, rape, and other serious issues that often go unreported and unacknowledged.
T-Shirts bearing emotional messages hung from clotheslines, survivors gave powerful speeches, music resonated within the quad, and male students and faculty members walked the school wearing women’s shoes to show their support.
More photos from this event can be found HERE.
