Each generation is called upon to play its role in advancing the arc of equity, dignity and respect that defines our common humanity. The ZeroNow Campaign™ is the voice of survivors speaking out to combat sexual misconduct in all its forms in the workplace, and helping its victims to rebuild their lives. We speak with one voice: Zero sexual assault. Zero sexual harassment. Zero harm.
Our focus is on the forgotten women of the everyday workplace in Canada and the United States. These are the women that a failed system and, surprisingly often, other women, have left behind when it comes to sexual misconduct and its aftermath.
By supporting victims with respect, compassion and the experiences of others, by advocating for change and creating healing initiatives that can help survivors rebuild their lives, we think we are making a strategic difference in the lives of those who most need it.
The ZeroNow Campaign™ was founded by Kathleen Finlay who knows the harmful effects of sexual misconduct on lives and careers — both from her own experience and from women around the world who have reached out to her to share their stories. She has been advocating for change and commenting on the devastation caused by sexual misconduct for the past decade.
We’re not celebrities, astronauts or women who make the headlines. We don’t frequent red carpet galas. We don’t own designer black dresses, or have a big media spotlight to help us find justice. What too many of us do have are lives and careers that have been shattered because we spoke out and insisted on being treated fairly and with respect. Because we know the toll that sexual misconduct takes, we know the urgency for genuine change is now.
Our approach is unique. No other #MeToo advocacy takes our integrated, systemic approach to survivor-driven reform.
