Vera House Seeks Proposals for Raise the Bar Initiative - Social Marketing Consultant

Vera House, Inc. is seeking proposals from firms located in Onondaga County with strong experience in research and social marketing development to provide our Raise the Bar initiative assistance in building our brand.  We are hoping with this opportunity, we will be able to take our prevention efforts to another level and reach the community on a larger scale. 

This is a request for a proposal for such research and consulting services that can assist us in achieving our goal of evaluating the social norms around safety in our community and develop a social marketing strategy to provide that information to the community in new, innovative ways. The primary purpose of this request for proposal is to conduct research to understand the social norms of our community around safety and expectations in our local nightlife establishments and utilize that data collected to develop a social marketing plan to create a social media presence within our community and test the social norms that were founded from the research.

The deadline for the proposal submission is 5 pm, August 4, 2020.  Please click below for a link to the full RFP.

A Message to Andrew Cuomo

“The Friends of Andrew Cuomo” spent over $300,000 to launch an ad campaign designed to paint former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as a victim of political attacks because of the sexual harassment claims against him. We cannot allow this gaslighting to continue while the ad revictimizes victims of not only Cuomo’s sexual harassment but ANYONE who has ever experienced abuse. The tactics used by Cuomo and his supporters further represent the barriers that survivors face every day that prevent them from coming forward and getting support. 

 

We at Vera House have asked Andrew Cuomo to take accountability for the harm he has caused on multiple occasions. Instead of admitting to his wrongdoings, he continues to use power and control to suppress and invalidate the truths of the survivors.  Today we released a video, produced by Solon Quinn Studios and supported by Survivors’ Network, that sends a powerful message to survivors, "I believe you."  

 

We are asking you to help us amplify the video so that survivors throughout New York and the rest of the world know that we believe and stand with them. 

 

Here’s how to get involved:  

1. Share our post on Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter  

2. Engage with our content on Instagram and TikTok   

3. Share survivor support resources from your organization  

4. Tag @verahouseinc
