About The Event

I am the founder of a youth driven group known as BackUp (Be Aware of Crimes and Know Ur Power). We started a social action project and we work for cyber crimes against women. This year we took an initiative to open up the Chittagong, Bangladesh chapter for OBR. We will be doing the flash mob in the theme song "Break the Chain" along with 50+ people who will be rising with us for Justice through dancing. We planned to do it during the T20 Bangladesh vs. Sri Lanka match in "Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium". We will have placards with us which will contain the messages for Justice. We are wearing same t shirts which will contain the OBR logo and our group's name.

About The Organizer

Tanzil Ferdous

I am an activist and I am doing my under graduation in Asian University for Women. I have completed my O level and A level from Sunshine Grammar School and College, Chittagong, Bangladesh. I have started doing voluntary social work since my high school. After that I have been involved with several organizations and have done a lot of voluntary works. Currently I am a committee member of "Volunteer for Bangladesh, Chittagong district", a member of CLAP (Center for Leadership Assistance and Promotions), a member of "Asian University for Women Model United Nations" Club. I am also a volunteer Art teacher at JAAGO school ( a school which provides free education for underprivileged children). Besides the social work that I do I have done several Leadership training which provided me with the practical and theoretical knowledge of Leadership.

I was a part of OBR and and a performer in Vagina Monologues last year in my university. Being a part of this encouraged me to be a part of it this year as well and start its chapter in my city.
