Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin's family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams." President Obama

great global discussion going on now as a part of Anti stop street harassment week
 
As part of launching the Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal campaign (http://reveal.thepixelproject.net) and in conjunction with International Anti-Street Harassment Week, The Pixel Project presents a live Google Hangout discussion and Q&A session with Holly Kearly, founder of Stop Street Harassment.
 
Holly will be talking about street harassment and how we can all take steps to stop this form of violence against women and girls.
 
There will also be a live Q&A session for viewers to ask Holly questions about International Anti-Street Harassment Week, her work to stop street harassment, and why she supports the Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal campaign.
 
It's time to stop violence against women. Together.
