Deandre Levy of the Detroit Lions made headlines this past spring when he penned a moving piece about toxic masculinity and how it plays a major role in an unhealthy environment. He’s now taking his interest in making the world a better place for all even further.
Levy has announced that he’ll be partnering with a Detroit clothing line to sell t-shirts that will use proceeds to test more than 11,000 rape kits that were found in a warehouse back in 2009, according to the Root. The Detroit Hustles Harder “Our Issue” tees and hoodies come in black with purple font.
“#DomesticViolence and #SexualAssault aren’t just women’s issues. They’re #OurIssue,” said Levy on a recent Instagram post. He’s also made other posts highlighting the importance of acknowledging that domestic violence and sexual assault are issues that we must all fight to end.
#DomesticViolence and #SexualAssault aren't just women's issues. They're #OurIssue All proceeds from T-shirt sales will go to Detroit's Enough SAID who raises private sector funding to test more than 11,000 forgotten rape kits, investigate the crimes and prosecute the resulting cases to secure justice and closure for victims, and ensuring a safer community for everyone. #DVAM They can be purchased at @aptemal #DetroitHustlesHarder
