DoSomething has joined forces with the Power Rangers, and is encouraging youth to find the superpower within themselves to stop bullying which is why we had to cover this because that is what our brand is built on: Empowerment.
Bullying stops within 10 seconds of someone intervening, but 85% of the time, no one intervenes because they are not sure what to do. The “You’ve Got the Power” campaign will activate thousands of young people to share the ways they have found a superpower within themselves in order to overcome bullying. Those tactics will be compiled into the largest peer-to-peer anti-bullying guide and shared globally. If there was a guide in ever school, this would change the dynamic.
Young people will join the “You’ve Got the Power” movement by submitting a tactic of how they found the power to beat bullying or how they helped younger students do the same. Those who submit their tactics to DoSomething will be entered for a chance at a $5,000 scholarship.
DoSomething has already worked with students from around the country to create a PSA for the campaign which can be viewed above and we encourage tweens and teens to sign up and join the campaign here
