Breaking Glass – Breaking the Violence

Jessica Buchanan and Medallio Green created The Glass Breaking Project to break the cycles of and silence about violence within relationships.  You write a message about what you want to “break” on a piece of glass, climb to the top of a ladder and smash the glass on the ground below.  It’s so visceral and satisfying!

I’m excited about this project because it is SUCH a great idea and because I witnessed these two dynamic young women hatch the concept in a Shenandoah University Women’s Studies class in Winchester, Virginia two years ago.   This is great activity for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence which is ongoing from November 25 – December 10.

Jessica and Medallio are graduating and creating a non-profit company to take the show on the road.  Click here to contact these visionary young women.
