NO MORE K-12 Campaign Debuts
FISA Foundation introduced a new video campaign, NO MORE K-12, featuring local high school students on Tuesday, May 8. The series debuted at Pittsburgh Action Against Rape (PAAR), located in the south side of Pittsburgh, with partners, advocates and students in attendance.
The four-part video series amplifies the voices of girls, describing serious and pervasive sexual harassment they witness at school. The series was filmed and produced by award-winning artist Njaimeh Njie, photographer, filmmaker and multimedia producer.
During the briefing, the girls featured in the videos spoke about how important the issue of sexual harassment in schools is and described what they were asked during the filming process.
Several prominent speakers also addressed the pervasiveness and impact of sexual harassment at school, the legal obligations of schools to provide a harassment free environment and offered recommendations for next steps.
Speakers included: Kristy Trautmann, FISA Foundation; Kathi Elliott, Gwen’s Girls and convener of the Black Girls Equity Alliance; Alison Hall, Pittsburgh Action Against Rape; Susan Frietsche, Women’s Law Project and local students.
