More from Save Services
Earlier this month SAVE learned about the Verizon Foundation's Monster video, which only portrayed men and boys as abusive monsters, and only women and girls as victims.
Persons got mad, got up, and took action. Thousands of persons wrote emails, sent impassioned letters, and made phone calls. Some distributed flyers at Verizon stores or organized demonstrations.
Our efforts paid off...Verizon removed the video!
But the Verizon Foundation still features false DV information on its website. Verizon still has egg on its face:
But we need to give credit where credit is due. Congratulations to all for contributing to our Verizon Video Victory!
