Announcing the 2014 RESPECT! Challenge


At the heart of the RESPECT! Challenge is a simple question: Who would you like to thank for teaching you Respect? Futures Without Violence and Macy’s, the Founding National Partner of the RESPECT! Campaign, created the RESPECT! Challenge to celebrate the everyday heroes in our lives by sharing inspiring stories from individuals across the country.

By promoting individuals who encourage positive solutions to violence, we help raise awareness and spark a discussion about the importance of role models. Participants can submit short essays or videos to the Facebook application, microsite (no Facebook account required) or by using #RespectChallenge2014 on Instagram, Twitter, or Vine.
