In the 2nd half, we featured Becca’s organization, One Student as the focal point of the #MorningDiscussion. Becca is an expert on sexual assault awareness and prevention and sexual empowerment and Becca has been nationally recognized for her achievements in sexual assault education and prevention. She and her best friend, fellow rabble rouser and business partner Kelly Addington co-founded Unite for Change, a national campaign to promote sexual assault education and prevention, and in 2009 they launched the popular educational tool Sexversations. In 2010 Becca and Kelly founded the non-profit organization One Student, because of their core belief that one sexual assault is too many and one student can make a difference. Becca has been featured on Dateline Marie Claire, NBC, CNN, Cosmopolitan, The Fox Morning Show, ABC, CBS and NPR. Becca and Kelly are the subjects of the documentary film, “You Are The One”, They are TEDx Youth Speakers and in 2014 they attended several meetings with senior officials at the White House regarding the Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault.
