Wayfarer Studios and NO MORE Join Forces for Good
We were thrilled to announce a long-term partnership with Wayfarer Studios, a production studio that strives to create projects that serve as agents for social change, aiming to disrupt for good by empowering and protecting creators with fresh voices, and championing content that speaks to the human spirit and our diverse global community. NO MORE will serve as a content advisor, community organizer and audience resource for a wide range of Wayfarer Studios films, documentaries, podcasts and social change initiatives aimed at increasing awareness and action to stop and prevent abuse and assault, and promote healthy relationships.
In the most recent episode of Wayfarer’s Webby-nominated podcast, The Man Enough Podcast, NO MORE co-founder Jane Randel and Global CEO Pamela Zaballa joined the show alongside hosts Justin Baldoni, Jamey Heath, and Liz Plank to discuss their collaboration, shared vision, and how they all endeavor to champion cultural change through the power of storytelling and advocacy, including with Wayfarer’s film adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s best-selling novel “It Ends With Us.”
NO MORE Goes to Washington
This month, NO MORE hosted a roundtable discussion in Washington, DC on the private sector’s role in addressing gender-based violence. Hosted at Healthsperien with support from the Vodafone Foundation, the meeting brought together more than 20 companies and featured remarks by White House Gender Policy Council Director Jennifer Klein. We’re looking forward to next steps in 2024 on how companies can work independently and collectively to support survivors, increase education, and fuel real culture change.
Go Behind-the-Scenes of the “The Girlfriends” Hit Podcast
In this month’s KNOW MORE Global Dialogue Series event, we got the inside scoop from “The Girlfriends” podcast host Carole Fisher and producer Anna Sinfield. Now you can find out more about how a group of women came together to bring an abuser and murderer to justice. Hear from Carole and Anna about the story, the making of the podcast, and how they worked to help other survivors. You can watch the full conversation on our YouTube channel via the link below.
