It is important to me to use my voice as a power blogger and PR professional to bring attention to issues of significant importance to the public at large. Often mainstream media neglects to spotlight certain issues and focus on other media too long.

As a mother the recent GANG RAPE of a 15 year old teen in Richmond, California has me outraged!!! Teen individuals can stand by laughing and watching a young girl become brutally raped??? We should all be outraged with the worst rage to draw media attention and make a huge difference to stop this malice behavior.

Global Grind is enforcing a strong push to highlight celebrities that are also outraged by this violent assault. While they could be focused on only the leading story lines that mainstream media finds interest, Global Grind is seeking to bring awareness to make a real difference.

Actress Gabrielle Union

“When I was 19 years old, I was raped. I was working at a shoe store in California, and the store was robbed. The person robbing the store ended up putting a gun to my head and raping me. As he was raping me, I felt as though I was floating over myself, thinking, ‘This isn’t happening.’ I blanked out and had an out-of-body experience, like I was hovering above seeing this ¬horrible thing happen to someone else…not me. I was fortunate enough to go the UCLA rape crisis center after this horrific ordeal. It gave me my life back. My dignity and self-esteem were gone and they helped me find them again. That’s why I now lobby for state legislatures across the country and the federal government to help raise funds and awareness for rape crisis centers, and I speak to all different kinds of people across the country about what happened to me. My goal is to never hear the words ‘me too’ from someone after I say ‘I was raped.”

Singer/ Actress/ Model Brooke Hogan

“We need to be focusing on teaching our youth that its actually COOL to protect and stand up for your peers. That it only makes you look like a total dumbass when you hurt other people with ANY kind of abuse. We need to be raising awareness about safe sex, respecting our bodies, respecting our souls, and respecting any form of life around us. WE, the adults, need to be leading by EXAMPLE. I have nothing more to say. I am outraged and I am praying for this young girl and her family.”

Supermodel Jessica White

“I was 15 years old when I was abused as well. Now 10 years later, at 25, I have been delivered from my pain. This is a long journey so again if there is anything that I can do for you please contact me as I’m your biggest fan.”
