On October 6th, a 2005 recording of Donald Trump boasting in vulgar terms about women was released. In what has come to be called “The Trump Tapes,” the Republican Presidential nominee describes forcing himself on women and grabbing them by the vagina – all of which he says he got away with because he was a “star.” Since the release of the tapes, and the subsequent apology video in which Trump dismisses his words as “locker room talk,” women all over the world have taken to Twitter to share their own stories of survival and abuse and to call out Trump’s comments for promoting rape culture.

Read below for The kNOw’s reactions to The Trump Tapes and their aftermath.












The kNOw Youth Media
The kNOw works to support and equip young people with the journalism and advocacy skills they need to tell their stories and the stories of their communities.

In 2006, over 25 youth began participating in weekly after-school writing workshops where they congregated in the hallway of a two-story building in West Fresno and learned the essentials of creating media and telling their stories. The group evolved over the next five years and is now proudly recognized as The kNOw Youth Media.

Through our program, we create opportunities for our youth participants, who in turn create long-term positive change in their communities. Our approach weaves youth development and youth media innovation to produce our biannual youth publication, multimedia projects, and community forums.

The kNOw began as a project of New America Media, which was the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations. In 2018 The kNOw became a project of Youth Leadership Institute.
