OUR CREW

OUR CREW

 

Our BLOOMin' CREW of staff, interns, volunteers and lead peer advocates create an organizational culture that is inclusive, empathetic, supportive, kind, and innovative.

Our CREW is made up of go-getters, academics, grassroots change agents, survivors and thrivers who work together to Bring Love On Others More, 365 days a year, by modeling empathy, respect, kindness, consent, safety and peace at work, at home, in schools, and in the community.

Some of us are early to rise. Some of us work best when burning the midnight oil. Our differences make us strong and our values drive our palpable dedication to this work. Our common bond is a vision of hope for a world without power and control based violence.

 

The work we do is fun, hopeful and challenging. As an organization with a deep commitment to next gen focused primary prevention, we intend to be here until gender-based violence is no longer normalized or tolerated in relationships, homes, schools, media channels, communities and institutions.

 

We boldly have an end date in mind; it's the day when domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers and mass shooting drills at school are no longer needed. That is the day when our work will be complete. To reach this culture changing goal, we lean on each other for support and value those who invest in us and partner with us to #UprootAbuse.
