Thank you for supporting our cause to develop a feature film documentary by teens for teens to address issues of teen dating violence. We are the first from our high school to qualify to present to over fifteen thousand high school student leaders from throughout the United States at the National Beta Conference. Our goal is to influence student leaders from around the country to follow our lead to address the reality that last year 1.5 million high school students were sexually and/or physically abused in teen dating relationships. The National Beta Organization selected us as National Qualifier because our mission and year long campaign. Moreover, our year long proposed campaign was recognized as the best service project of student leaders from six different states in the Southwestern Region of the United States. To fulfill the mission, of what others national organizations have recognized as a needed program by teens for teens, we need your help to raise funds for travel expenses to the Beta National Conference and expenses associated with creating a documentary of our year long campaign. The goal of the documentary is to lead other teens in the United States to become proactive and prevent issues of abuse and gender inequality towards women and girls.

Additional Information:

Whoaman Student Group of High School Students request your help to attend a National Conference and Film a Documentary to raise awareness and prevention of teen dating violence.Last year over 1.5 million teens were physically and/or sexually abused in dating relationship.Because of our groups year long proposed campaign,we have been recognized as one of the best service projects by the National Beta Office and we have been chosen to present at a conference that will draw over fifteen thousand student leaders from around the United States.

This campaign’s main purpose is to work against the normalization of violence against women/girls and gender inequality in our society. This normalization is often portrayed by various forms of media that provide us with various forms of entertainment and that condition us to accept marginalization of females. Since values are often established well before adulthood, this program differs from all programs that address abuse towards women/girls. This program is created by teens for teens to address the devaluing of women/girls and gender inequality in everyday thought, action and practice.

Everyday in this country, 3 women will be murdered by someone they are dating or married to. Every 9 seconds in this country a woman or girl will be sexually assaulted. These issues manifest at a young age when young people are exposed to pornography as a primary form of relationship education, whereby they learn to think of women as objects to their pleasure and conquest. Other types of negative exposures have the same outcome. With this mental framework and training from social media and negative people, the only end in mind is to have a trophy or a notch of conquest at the expense of another human being.

For teens, the concept of how to establish and maintain a healthy relationship with women and girls becomes a lost art form. The concept of healthy relationships gets lost and the value for another human being is not considered. Although many boys do not become abusers, the silence and acceptance of male peers that engage in locker room talk has a by-product. Silence and failure to address this societal issue promote abusive disrespectful thoughts and actions toward women and girls. Therefore, we need your help to create a feature film documentary of a yearlong campaign to give the right message to teens that need it most.
