tillahjiSay Something, TogetherWI & CariMAN launch
LeaveMeAlone, LeaveSheAlone Carnival Campaign
On Tuesday February 14, Say Something, in partnership with TogetherWI and CariMAN will launch a new campaign using Calypso Rose’s “Leave me Alone” to bring attention to Gender Based Violence within the Carnival space.
We ask everyone to use the hashtags #leavemealone #leaveshealone to share stories of your experiences of street harassment and violence during Carnival and also of positive moments when you felt defended or protected by your Carnival community. And we ask you to share your thoughts about how we create change and also to encourage men to hold their friends, brothers, family, and colleagues more accountable. LeaveMeAlone & LeaveSheAlone are rallying cries against those who harass or want to control women, and they are also serious calls to all of us, especially men, to step up and help us create safe spaces and a safer Carnival for women.
