Power On! Campaign Hits the Basketball Court

On August 8, The Trevor Project, Straight But Not Narrow, Human I-T, and Josh Hutcherson came together at L.A. Live to raise awareness of Power On: a campaign that brings life-affirming technology loaded with LGBTQ resources into the hands of underserved youth nationwide.

This unique collaboration took center court during Straight But Not Narrow’s 3rd annual 3ON3 Celebrity Basketball Game. Before the first play was made, “Most Valuable Player” Josh Hutcherson and Trevor’s Executive Director and CEO, Abbe Land told attendees about how they could help LGBTQ youth nationwide Power On. The Straight But Not Narrow team even surprised Abbe with a cake in honor of Trevor’s sixteenth year of service.

"It's awesome to know that [Power On] will be used to help a young person out there who, before this campaign, wasn't able to get access to information and resources that could really help them,” said Josh in a game-day interview. “I've always respected the work that The Trevor Project does, and to have an opportunity for Straight But Not Narrow to collaborate with them on a campaign like Power On is exciting,”

Power On runs until LGBT Spirit Day on October 17, so submit your donation today! After you give, your technology will be erased, cleaned and refurbished by Human I-T before being sent to a youth center, homeless shelter, or LGBTQ community center.
