Casting Call: Play a Role in the Movement to End Sexual Violence

A film crew sets up in a school hallway

BARCC’s Youth Leadership Corps (YLC) is filming a short video that will be shown in our educational workshops and shared through our online platforms. The video will portray everyday situations like street harassment, responding to friends’ disclosures, and unequal dress code expectations that make young people feel unsafe and contribute to sexual violence.

We’ll be filming Tuesday, October 24, from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m.

We’re looking to cast for the following roles:

  • One adolescent young man to portray a brother who is a bystander to an argument between a mother and two other siblings about clothing.
  • One adult woman to portray a mother who comments on what her daughter is wearing as she leaves the house.

If you’re interested, e-mail Eliza at To find out more about BARCC and the YLC, visit the YLC website or check us out on social media.

In our video, we want to reflect both the diverse communities of young people who we support at BARCC and to challenge stereotypes about sexual violence. BARCC knows that survivors have complex identities that shape their experiences. We strive to represent the communities we serve by providing opportunities for individuals who identify with these roles, due either to personal identity or commitment to BARCC’s mission.
