2. Spreading the truth about this stuff by sharing the story behind the stats as part of our “Truth” speaking series — an interactive talk we give to students and professional groups across the country.
3. Partnering with other industry advocates to create tools like this Resource Guide that help educate our peers about these issues and how they can join us in making change.
4. And, on the creative tip, we created a collaborative street-level awareness campaign aimed at challenging the industry’s outdated culture using design, music, art, and other creative expressions.
