We had the chance to participate in a great event on December 8th. You can read more about what this organization does on their website, Help-Portrait. Stemming from the photographs that we received back, we got together and put our thinking caps on and decided there was an amazing opportunity facing us here at 1 in Four. If you also had your pictures taken at the professional photo shoot they did next door to Women's Services, we are looking for women/families who are interested in being a part of the 1 in Four ad campaign we're building. All that is required is your initial photo (the one where you are holding the numbered sign) and your willingness to be seen publicly (which, I realize, is the harder part!) You would be able to choose your own slogan and have final say on the finished product.
Here are the first two we've got ready:
We know it is asking a lot to put yourself out there in the public eye, but the time has come to break the silence -- to let the world know that we will not sit idly by and let ourselves fall victim to partners or to the system. If you are ready to take a stand and let your voice be heard, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you have a picture for this empowering campaign.
(and an added bonus for anyone who might be interested, we also had 1 in Four founders together for the photo shoot, so snagged a couple shots of us, too! Here is our favourite one.... )by
