“What time is it?”
“Well.. It’s time to take a stand against sexual abuse!”
“Hell yeah it is!”
That was just one of many conversations I had with people on the University of Oregon campus today. I went around with a few friends carrying green and yellow clocks that said, “It’s time… To Take a Stand Against Sexual Abuse.” Today is the Day of Action for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center suggested that supporters change their profile pictures on Facebook and Twitter to photos pictures of themselves holding up a clock. This would be to signify that it was time to do something about sexual assault! The example the website gave was, “It’s time… to stop making sexist jokes.”
Leave me a comment and answer this: What time is it time for you to do?
My mini spontaneous campaign seemed to have been a success! FIFTY PHOTOS!
A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO LET ME TAKE THEIR PICTURES!!
Special thanks go to:
Ben for helping me construct the clocks!
Aloura for providing the clocks!
Allison for helping me in the morning!
Micaela for standing with me and talking to people for hours this afternoon!
Cecilia for hunting her friends down!
Rachelle M. for sending me her clock photo from out of town!
ANYONE who saw my clocks and supports the cause!
EVERYONE who has read this far!
THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE!
KEEP ON SUPPORTING TO END SEXUAL VIOLENCE!
