we are the resistance...

Join me in acting personally and politically to resist a culture which, according to current global research, is making us all sick. 

Tomorrow i am incredibly privileged to speak in my first high school as a representative for Collective Shout, to encourage young women - and men-  to challenge sexism and violence in all its forms. I tested out me presentation for the first time last night to my housemate, her boyfriend, and her sister as well. 

I was overwhelmed this morning when i saw he had wrote this on Facebook:

It was within that moment that i realised how much people need to hear this message! The reactions i have had to it has created an urgency within me to get this message out there so more and more people can be positively impacted by it like Bob was. If you are in a highschool, church or community group that wants to hear about how to act personally and politically to resist and challenge a culture that is according to global research making young men and women sick. You can email me at talitha@collectiveshout.org to request a booking.

Together we can all make a change. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other day. We are the ones we have been waiting for.
