Renee Sotile & Mary jo Godges:

On October 3, 1995, OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder charges for the deaths, of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.  

Working as a video-journalist, Renee covered the "Trial of the Century" and never forgot the impact Nicole Brown Simpson's death made on her. Imprinted in her mind are the shocked and heartbreaking expressions on the faces of Nicole's family. She and Mary jo want the world to remember Nicole and all women who suffered and continue to suffer from domestic abuse.

Message to Educators

Nicole Brown Simpson was a highly public women victimized by domestic violence. By saying her name, hearing her name, people recall the impact her death had on them and our nation. A collective memory of  "where we were" when first hearing OJ Simpson's wife was murdered in 1994. We recall the scenes of the infamous bronco chase, his arrest, the "Trial of the Century," and acquittal.

For the generations following Nicole Brown Simpson, her children's generation and those after, we say her name as a metaphor for domestic violence. "Nicole" is them or someone they know. This generation will ensure that there are #NoMoreNicoles in a call to action through this galvanizing song. One of the most effective communication tools to create awareness, spread knowledge and empower. 

This generation's strength at spreading positive messages is like no other. They are the generation that raises awareness across borders. They are the generation that challenges and knocks down boundaries. We have seen this generation create action calls that put an end to human rights violations. 

#IRememberNicole will empower this generation to raise awareness, change laws and prevent intimate partner violence on the national level.
