Movie Premiere for "No More"
About last night...
Destiny had a movie premiere to attend and it was exciting. The movie is called "No More"
"No More" is part of the #METOO movement. This movie involved a sensitive subject that is long overdue for real dialog as well as new laws about how we as a nation handles sexual assault. Destiny's role was a "featured extra" and because of her age, she was not apart of the really sensitive script. Destiny was one of 2 girls stationed outside of the frat house where in the movie an assault took place and Destiny's job was sort of an activist role which she gave out pamphlets on the matter of sexual assault to fellow college students with concerns.
The "No More" film is more of a short film and is on its way to film festivals. There were multiple panels, the panels consisted of professionals in various areas such as a psychologist and various women who sit on boards related to assault and gun violence and harassment in general. These various professional panels also consisted of sexual assault survivors. The panelist spoke to the audience before the film and after to explain the reasons behind the movie and to offer opportunities for discussions with a Q&A for those who are survivors of sexual assault. This was a great way to get the word out to members of the community about how and where to go for help if you or someone you knew needed help as a result of sexual assault. The night was filled with inspiration and HOPE! I was glad to be a part of it. I was equally glad to experience this very serious topic with my daughter this way. She and I have always talked about what to do if you feel unsafe and to tell us, her family/parents, no matter what. Last nights event was confirmation for everything that I have ever told my daughter plus a few local community resources to boot.
