Her non-profit foundation also launched a CrowdRise campaign in hopes of making the event even bigger than her first successful SlutWalk Los Angeles, last October.
The Amber Rose Foundation’s goal is also to expand this event dedicated to women’s empowerment and fighting against victim blaming to other cities across the globe. Additional sponsors devoted to supporting women will be announced soon.
“As you can see in the news every day, from sexist remarks on the campaign trail to sick sexual abuse in schools and corporations, the fight against f*cked up, unacceptable behavior is really just beginning,” said Amber Rose. “Last year thousands came out to support women facing these problems every day and to say loud and clear, ‘My Clothes Are Not My Consent!'”
SlutWalk Los Angeles will be hosted by The Amber Rose Foundation, a non-profit organization Amber started to support her core mission of uplifting, empowering, and enhancing the platform of women around the world. The money raised from donations will be used to bring this event to life with on-site services such as HIV testing, counseling, sexual awareness booths, food and merchandise vendors and a host of other services. But most importantly, donations will support the foundation and organizations across the country of women who have been subject to slut shaming, sexual assault, and even rape.
The 2015 SlutWalk Los Angeles was wildly successful, becoming a top news story internationally and garnering 60 million impressions. Many people learned about the SlutWalk movement for the first time during this event including signature slogans such as “My Clothes Are Not My Consent” and “My P*ssy, My Choice.” Amber also made news by publicly sharing her personal story of slut shaming she experienced for the first time on stage-a moment that left her, and most of the crowd, both in tears and inspired. The October 2016 event will expand to include more entertainment and special guest speakers, a fashion show, art installations, and more counseling and education opportunities.
Of course, the day’s center piece is still the SlutWalk itself, modeled after the global movement that originated in Toronto in 2011 after a police officer told a group of college women that if they wanted to avoid being sexually assaulted, they shouldn’t dress like “sluts”. This statement sparked an outrage that lead to a full attack against victim blaming, sexual violence and gender inequality. In Los Angeles, women and their supporters will be invited to march and speak out to kick off the day’s events.Read more at:cheap formal dresses melbourne
