Once Upon a Time
A Revolution Began.
A phone call started Say Something.
One friend called another friend and shared a need. The need was to reach this generation.
To meet this generation through the schools and equip them to recognize the signs of a growing epidemic in this country. To reveal to them the secret, that this epidemic has no socio-economic, religious, age or race boundaries and is actually targeting the vulnerable among them.
What did that friend say after he heard about the need?
He said, “No way!”
He said, “I’ve got three girls, I don’t want to get involved in this.”
He said, “The subject makes me too angry, it’s too awful.”
Long after the phone call ended, the conversation wouldn’t leave his mind though.
So he called a friend and told him what he was thinking about doing, and asked for help.
So those two friends got together for three days. They got up early and stayed up late, planning and brainstorming, looking at the challenges and the solutions. Together, their experience added up to over 52 years of leading, speaking, teaching and encouraging the younger generation, but this idea was something different for both of them.
That weekend they decided to start a revolution. To tap into the strength of this generation and help them become a force for emancipation throughout their very own communities.
Say Something has evolved and is about more than human trafficking, it’s ultimately about reaching the vulnerable BEFORE they become victimized. Whether it is sex trafficking, suicide or bullying, we are about equipping students with safe and practical tools so they can recognize the warning signs and if they need to, report suspicious behavior. Together, with teachers, school administration and the students, we are fighting the epidemic of exploitation until it is no more!
