Preceding the #MeToo movement by nearly a decade, The Zer0Now Campaign is one of the most recognized advocacies for combating gender violence, sexual harassment, institutional betrayal – and banning NDAs.   The Zer0Now Campaign was founded by Kathleen Finlay, whose unique voice of compassion and innovative thinking in addressing gender based harms is regularly cited in parliamentary debates, op-ed columns and scholarly papers. 

Whether presenting ground-breaking legislative and policy ideas to lawmakers, working with the media to give context and background to breaking news stories or supporting victims on their harrowing healing journey, The Zer0Now Campaign tackles the causes of sexualized wrongdoing where they exist and champions the solutions that are needed where they matter. And we’re changing lives for the better every day.  For more information about our work, please contact us.
