“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” — The Lorax
It can be difficult to stand up for the truth, but that is what makes it so important to do so, particularly when everyone else seems to be on the opposite side.
Social pressures, insecurities, and fear keep our mouths shut as injustices occur. We fear the consequences of speaking out, what people will think, and, let us be honest, it is easier to sit back and let things slide.
But sometimes it’s so important to stand up for your beliefs that you must dare to raise your voice, especially if it’s not the popular opinion because that’s when it becomes mandatory for you to stand up for what’s right.
At ConfiDance, our mission statement and programs are built around making life better for others. We believe every human being has the power to make this world a better place for all – no matter the gender or color. As a company, we will never feel comfortable sitting silent when so many injustices are happening around us.
We realize there are many issues relevant to our world today. However, to focus our financial efforts, we are currently donating to these two organizations below. We will donate:
$20 of each All-Access monthly membership, new and recurring through September.
At Equality Now, we believe in creating a just world where women and girls have the same rights as men and boys. We tackle the most difficult issues such as Legal Equality, ending sexual violence, ending sex trafficking, and harmful practices. We also challenge ingrained cultural assumptions and call out inequality wherever we see it. Social change often begins with legal change and so we use the power of the law to create enduring equality for women and girls everywhere.
