No matter what Jackie said, we should automatically believe rape claims.

The nation has been in uproar in the past few weeks, as disturbing #rape allegations have been leveled against both #UVA fraternity members and once-beloved media figure Bill Cosby. But due to reporting errors by Rolling Stone and societal disbelief, the credibility of the accusers is now called into question.

In the Washington Post, Jaclyn Friedman, author of Yes Means Yes and founder of Women, Action & the Media discusses why this pattern is harmful.

"By loudly disbelieving accusers, no matter how unlikely it is that they are all lying, we are telling the survivors in our own lives, that we don’t believe them either"

Incredulity hurts victims more than it hurts wrongly-accused perps.

Telling My Son About Ferguson

A powerful piece by Michelle Alexander for the The New York Times reflecting on the pain of telling her young son the truth about #Ferguson.

Alexander is a beacon in the modern debate on civil rights, criminal justice and racial equality. Being the author of the New York Times Bestseller The New Jim Crow and a widely respected civil rights lawyer doesn't make explaining the harsh truth to her son any easier:

"For the past few years, I have traveled from coast to coast speaking to just about anyone who will listen about the horrors of our criminal injustice system...Yet here I am, on Monday evening, before the announcement about the grand jury’s decision has been made, speechless."

Six Words: 'With Kids, I'm Dad. Alone, Thug'

Award-winning NPR journalist Michele Norris' The Race Card Project has opened up important discussion about race with people from all walks of life. The project encourages participants to submit their thoughts about race in just 6 words.

Mark Schultz: UFC win was a cathartic step after Foxcatcher tragedy

#Foxcatcher is one of the most buzzed-about movies of the year...with groundbreaking performances by Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell- and it comes out in selected theaters today. But the most amazing thing about the movie is that it is a true story...the true story of our very own #KepplerExclusive, Olympic Wrestler Mark Schultz.

In this great article by FOX Sports, the real Schultz reflects on the making of the movie, which brought him back to some of the most painful parts of his life, but which ultimately plays a powerful role in honoring his brother Dave. The incredible hard work of Tatum, Ruffalo and Carell paid off as they truly embodied the complex characters for this compelling thriller.

The Advocate: Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox is one of Glamour's 2014 #WomenOfTheYear! From her groundbreaking work as Sophia Burset on Orange is the New Black to breaking boundaries in real life as the first openly Transgender person to be nominated for an #Emmy and the first openly Trans woman to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine, we 100% agree!

Glamour has named her "The Advocate" on the star-studded list which includes Chelsea Clinton (being honored as the “Women’s Champion,”) Mindy Kaling (as “Lady Boss”), and Ambassador Samantha Power (getting the nod as the magazine's “Ambassador”)


"Laverne has an incredible ability to connect with others, including those for whom her message may be very new," said Piper Kerman, author of the memoir on which #OITNB is based.

RJ Mitte, College Speaker, Keppler Speakers Bureau

Huge thanks to RJ Mitte and Washington University in St. Louis for such a great event on Wednesday, 10/29! We're so glad it was a great success, and thanks for your kind words!

"I wanted to say first off, thank you so so so much. You were both extremely helpful every single step of the way and I, having zero experience in the booking agent/entertainment booking field, felt as though I had no difficulties at any point. You were clear, understanding, and excited about the event which made everything move so quickly and easily.. I am so appreciative of everything you have done for this organization and for me.

In terms of RJ, WOW! If I could book him again next year, I would! Not only was his speech amazing-- a couple of his points really resounded with me and haven't even left my thoughts yet-- he was one of the kindest people I have ever met.

He gave the speech really well and spoke about how people our age have to realize that we need to be leaders in our own lives because we shouldn't wait around to follow someone else. We should do the right thing no matter what our surroundings are and he even touched on social media presence which is extremely important to address on a college campus.

I really cannot say anything that isn't a glowing recommendation for him and for other people to book him. He is a down-to-earth 20-year-old that spends his free time giving inspiring talks on campuses and if that isn't exactly what every college student should see, I don't know what is.

I thank you again for everything that you put into this. The event went off with such success that I can't wait for my successor to work with Keppler Speakers. After he or she gets my notes from the event, I'm sure he or she won't be able to wait to start planning next year's Speaker." - Aashna Narang '17
