The Truth About Vinnie?s Tampon Case:

Vinnie?s Project Goal: To create an affordable (or free) everyday object that would encourage a positive and non-sexual dialog between guys and girls about a woman?s body? in hopes of sparking education that will work towards ending violence against women.

Vinnie?s Inspiration: A friend revealed to me her having been kidnapped and raped by a group of strange men when she was in high school. The recurring trauma of her experience compounded by the fact that her family didn?t know how to deal with the crime and the fact that the perps were never arrested or brought to justice shook me to my core.

Furious at a society that refuses to develop the tools to deal with such horrific and wide-spread behavior I took it upon myself to attempt to change the environment that allows a college educated male like myself to be willfully ignorant of a woman?s well being and safety.

Vinnie?s Famous!
Vinnie?s Tampon Case has been featured in nearly every woman?s magazine, on countless radio programs, in newspapers across the globe, on TV shows, in documentaries, in books, at the Andy Warhol Museum, offered in stores around the world, given away by Justin Timberlake at his 22nd birthday party, discussed in Harvard classrooms, and, most importantly, discussed by boys and girls on playgrounds.

ROBERT BRANNON, CO-FOUNDER OF NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MEN AGAINST SEXISM
http://www.nomas.org/
Robert Brannon, Professor, Brooklyn College and NOMAS co-founder. He serves as Men?s Studies Association and NOMAS Pornography and Prostitution Task Group leader and is NYS-NOW Task Force Co-Chair on Trafficking, Pornography and Prostitution.

The National Organization for Men Against Sexism, founded in 1974, is an activist organization of men and women supporting positive changes for men. NOMAS advocates a perspective that is pro-feminist, gay affirmative, anti-racist, dedicated to enhancing men?s lives, and committed to justice on a broad range of social issues including class, age, religion, and physical abilities.

BEN SIEGEL, FORMER VP OF HUNTER COLLEGE WOMEN?S RIGHTS COALITION
Ben helped organize a national women?s rights conference, and is a passionate feminist activist.

JERIN ALAM OF NATIONAL NOW YOUNG FEMINIST TASK FORCE & HUNTER COLLEGE WOMEN?S RIGHTS COALITION
http://www.now.org/programs/yf/taskforce/index.html
Jerin Alam, originally from Bangladesh, served as President of the Hunter Women?s Rights Coalition (HWRC), a group with several male officers, while attending Hunter College from April 2007 to graduation.

Along with HWRC, she helped organize a national feminist conference in which Gloria Steinem and Rosie O?Donnell participated. Her recent efforts with HWRC have included lobbying for immigrants? rights, and events to raise awareness and combat eating disorders and body issues, and fight sexual violence. She set up various anti-violence workshops on campus with Men Can Stop Rape and the Bringing in the Bystander Program, where public safety trainers from CUNY Central ? as well as rape crisis counselors from around the city ? were trained in violence prevention.

Alam was recently accepted into the NOW National Young Feminist Task Force, and was invited to speak at the NOW National Conference and the Men Can Stop Rape conference.

CHILDREN OF MISSLE CITY
Paradigm Shift supports this important documentary, and the work of the The Coping Center
Sderot is the only city on Earth targeted by 10,000 missiles in 8 years. 7400 children live in Missile City and they run for their lives an acerage of three times a day. Almost 90% suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Coping Center is the only professional psychological treatment facility for Sderot children needing help dealing with life under constant attack. Soon the Center will shut down; there is no money to keep it open.

Children of Missile City follows Sderot children and their struggle to survive under the worst psychological terror that currently exists on the planet.
