January 2015 marks 25 years of friendship for Kelly and Becca. In celebration of their 25th best-friendaversary (yes, it’s a thing!) we’re offering the gift of social change. To celebrate the power of friendship, survivors and secondary survivors we’re launching the YATO Ambassador program. 

Through January 31, 2015 all Ambassadors will receive a copy of the You Are the One (www.youaretheonefilm.org) documentary film, a public license for campus/ community screenings, comprehensive educational toolkit and a one-on-one phone call or online meeting with One Student staff — all for the cost of a film– $24 (retail value $275).

  • Provide #iamonestudent pictures from your event(s) to be included in a national collage
  • Share quotes about the film and actions taken following the film with the One Student team so that we can highlight the success of your campus program
  • Promote One Student resources; a few suggestions include: encouraging individuals to sign the One Student pledge, distribute one-pager resources, show the media campaigns prior to the screening and display the posters on campus to start conversations

My truth is my weapon.

by One Student co-founder Kelly Addington

 

Twitter trolls and the media’s role have me second guessing my facts.

The details are daunting

They come at me like an eerie blur each time my eyes close 

Reality? I lost that the night he raped me and might never get it back.

 

Truth is my weapon, but it’s pointed at me.

No matter what I say, you hear what you want.

 

Deny me, defy me, blame me or shame me.

Feel better now?  

That won’t make the truth go away.  

 

Proof, you ask?

No, I don’t have that.

 

He said, she said?

I say, its bullshit.

 

What does it matter, you don’t hear me, your mind is full. 

The judgment, the questions, the lack of respect

My truth is the truth.

For now, I’ll keep it to myself.

 

But, what I will say is this,

I’m a sister. I’m a daughter. I’m an Aunt.  I’m a friend.

Have one of those?

What’s her truth?

There Are Too Many Jackies

Annie E. Clark co-founder of End Rape on Campus BuzzFeed post on why the Rolling Stone retraction affects all survivors of sexual assault

Eggs with cheddar cheese. Pepper and garlic salt. I was eating lightly scrambled eggs when the news of the Rolling Stone “retraction” of a highly publicized gang rape hit all of our Facebooks and Twitters on Friday. On the West Coast it was about 10 a.m. (It was a very late breakfast day.) If only there would have been bacon. Maple bacon. Maybe maple bacon would have been enough to wish the day away.

I was called and emailed by various media sources within a matter of minutes of the news hitting the internet. As a public survivor of rape, media outlets wanted quotes. Some wanted sit down TV interviews about why false rape allegations happen (they don’t any more than false reports of other crimes, according to the FBI and other sources). Some wanted to know “why survivors lie” (we don’t; rape reporting isn’t a leisurely, pleasant pastime). And they wanted these interviews immediately.

This all makes sense from a media perspective. No one wants to publish anything mediocre on Friday afternoon. If a media source published something it had to be immediate and sensational.

But this didn’t make sense for me. I needed to breathe. Read More »
