Still on their” Who Else But Us” tour, Trevor and Diggy continue to speak out against bullying, this time in a Dallas girls’ high school. The two visited KIPP Truth Academy on behalf of the Saving Our Daughters campaign, “Take the Oath”. The campaign offers an eight step program to stop bullying, to which students are asked to commit themselves.
The school is part of the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) an open-enrollment, college-prepatory network with extended school days, and year. The program has high expectations from its students, and seeks to build partnerships between students, parents, and teachers. It seems like the perfect place for Diggy and Trevor to spread good mojo. Rolling Out reported that the students were indeed “pumped”, and that “the message was well received” by the 200 young girls in attendance.
The dynamic duo also took the time to share their message at the Boys and Girls Club in Cumberland County earlier this month. There, they reminded the audience that bullying, and the maltreatment of others, is a choice one will have to live with for the rest of their life.
This time, the young entertainers were representing Take the Oath, which is nationally led by singer Keke Palmer. Trevor and Diggy stopped by Good Morning Texas to discuss their involvement in the project. “We always strive to do something positive, just to be able to empower these young women, and have them stand up for what’s right”, Trevor explained. He also pointed out that as young stars they do have a certain level of experience with the topic, referring especially to the fact that negative comments can always be found on the internet. But these boys don’t let cyber-bullying get them down. “I feel like we’re so grounded in who we are as people that little stuff doesn’t bother us,” Trevor added.
