Access Hollywood: One Year Later

In October 2016, we heard Donald Trump brag about sexually assaulting women on the leaked Access Hollywood tape. One year later, UltraViolet members marked the anniversary to say women will keep resisting the sexual predator and white supremacist in the White House. #WeGrabBack

Our actions received hundreds of thousands of views across the country and hundreds of press hits with coverage from The Washington Post, CNN, The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, Vogue, The Daily Beast, Glamour, and a lot more.

  • • On the morning of October 6, 2017 (one day before the anniversary), we commissioned a digital truck to play the Access Hollywood tape on a loop behind the White House from 9 am to 9 pm. We streamed the video on Facebook Live and reached nearly half a million people.

  •  Using #WeGrabBack, UltraViolet members and people across D.C. posted photos and videos on social media. 
  • • Friday's actions helped propel the anniversary of the Access Hollywood tape into the national narrative--within a couple of hours "Access Hollywood" was a national trend on Twitter.
  • Alyssa Milano, Kathy Griffin, Rose McGowan, Shaun King, and dozens of other celebrities shared the live-stream and photos from the truck on Twitter.

  • •In addition to the Rally and the all-day video loop, our co-founders Nita Chaudhary and Shaunna Thomas co-wrote Teen Vogue op-ed about the anniversary and what Trump's presidency means for young women.

Because of UltraViolet members, millions of people remembered the anniversary of Access Hollywood tape and were reminded that Trump is a proud sexual predator. His administration is actively dismantling protections for sexual assault survivors and he's still openly assaulting and harassing women. His election has activated thousands of people for the first time. From the fight to stop the Muslim ban to the fight to protect our care--we keep showing up. Trump does not get to brush this under the rug. #WeGrabBack
