Ashanti Launches I Declare Me Campaign

“I believe in women’s empowerment and standing up for what you believe in,” says Ashanti. “‘I Declare Me’ is a campaign that addresses issues facing young people today such as voting, domestic violence, discrimination and eating disorders. Ashanti has teamed up with Akademiks to create a limited-edition t-shirt for the campaign. Besides the t-shirts a virtual community will be made to create a safe and inclusive on-line space to for women to share testimonies. In addition to women being able to share their personal stories on the site, Ashanti will be available to chat with women regarding issues that women face. I think this is an awesome idea that Ashanti thought of. A lot of people today lean on social networking websites and blogs to vent, so for there to be a specific place online where women can share their stories and gain inspiration from others, that's beautiful!Of course it's extra promotion for her new album but, it's a good cause. Most celebrities don't extend themselves in this way. For more information visit
