Savannah is a South Albany High School senior. This year, she's started a program called the #MeToo Campaign, which takes after the Me Too Movement sweeping across the globe and social media. Her goal is to create a better, more supportive, and safer community for teen victims/survivors of sexual violence/harassment so they can seek help without feeling that they will be in the wrong, that they most certainly shouldn’t be in. As part of this program, they will be starting support groups for any and all students to attend. These groups will help to provide students with the resources they need to get help for themselves, for loved ones who are survivors, learn about rape culture myths, and other topics of discussion. She feels that leading this campaign has opened up opportunities to be an advocate for those that don’t have a voice.
