Violence

Hello, I am a Victims Advocate of the Sex Crimes Bureau of the Kings County District Attorneys Office, and am planning a conference on teens and sexual assault. We are looking for a celebrity Keynote speaker to speak at our conference in early June. I was surfing the net and stumbled upon your website. Do you have any suggestions as to who would be interested in participating in our conference, and how we can get in touch with them? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Marnie White

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and for the important work that you are doing. Obviously celebrities are only so good if they 1.) believe in the issue at hand and 2.) can articulate that concern, relationship to the issue, etc... Then the next step is obviously to find celebrities who are concerned about teens and sexual assault. Here are some suggestions:

1.) Andrew Shue (from Melrose Place and founder of Do Something a youth group) and/or his sister Elizabeth Shue who helped to co-found Do Something.

2.) Singer Joan Osborne who has done work with Planned Parenthood.

3.) Eve Ensler who created The Vagina Monologues and V-Day --which addresses sexual violence among other things.

That's a start--as for reaching these people it's best to go through their agents/managers.
